Similar Hunslet locos which run on Bentley Miniature Railway

Steam Locos | Other Locos


This 0-4-0 loco is based on a Welsh slate quarry loco.

The loco was a regular steamer at Bentley during the mid-1990s however spent some years idle due to its owner's failing health. The loco subsequently changed hands and ran frequently during 2012-2014 but was withdrawn after a routine boiler inspection.
It returned to service in 2017 until being withdrawn again in 2023 to undergo a further renovation to improve it's operational ability, returning to service in 2024 sporting a new Black colourscheme.

This is often seen training new drivers in the world of steam operation or helping to haul larger trains (seen here working with Basil).

Maid Marian

Maid Marian first appeared at Bentley Miniature Railway in 2015, and is very similar to Merlin that also runs at the railway.

Like Merlin, despite its size, the loco is more than capable of hauling a 2-3 car train for a whole day.

Margaret is a 1/3rd scale model of a Hunslet-designed 0-4-0 saddle tank engine of the well-known "Alice" or "Port" class, so typical of those which operated in the Welsh slate quarries. Margaret has a conventional cab, as fitted to the full-size locos when originally delivered from Hunslet in Leeds. Margaret is in regular service on the railway each summer, now resplendent in her newly-applied bodywork livery after receiving a new steel boiler during 2009 when she was formerly known as Jasmine. Margaret can also be seen operating at portable track events.
