Britomart came to the Festiniog Railway in 1965 after a working life at the Pen-yr-Orsedd Quarry in the Nantlle Vale in North Wales. The engine is typical of the small Hunslet 0-4-0STs built by Hunslet of Leeds for quarries in North Wales. Britomart is owned by a private consortium and is housed and steamed on special occasions at the Festiniog Railway.
The photograph above shows the engine at Harbour Station in 1966. At the moment, Britomart is dismantled for major overhaul and repairs
