Introducing the Mamod Quarry Locomotive.
This loco is reminiscent of the penrhyn quarry loco “995 Gertrude”, which was built in the early 1900’s.
In 1955 it went to Canada where it was sold to Charles Mathews. In 1965 it was transferred to the Centennial Centre Of Science And Technology, Ontario.
It has been recently been repatriated to the UK and now resides in Stanford Barn Railway, England.
