Beddgelert, the 0-6-4ST was built by Hunslet Locomotive Company Leeds in 1878, to works order number 206. Built for the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railways he mainly worked the Bryngwyn branch. Beddgelert was ideally suited to the heavy freight trains. Unfortunately the engine only lasted until 1906 as it was considered uneconomical to repair and was scrapped after only 28 years of service! Beddgelert is quite a large loco and will require a minimum of 2 foot 6 inch (760mm) radius to operate effectively.
