|Cloister - Built for Dinorwic Quarries||Date Built: 1891. Works No. 542.|
Cloister is one of the celebrated "Quarry Hunslets" which combine good looks, mechanical toughness and haulage capacity. Built by the Hunslet Engine Company of Leeds in 1891 for the Dinorwic Slate Quarry at Llanberis, she was later named after the winner of the 1893 Grand National. Her job involved shunting slate wagons on galleries halfway up a mountain and she survived this arduous work until 1962 when sold to Mr. R.C.U. Corbett. Later Mr. Corbett most generously gave her to the the Hampshire Narrow Gauge Railway Society.
