|George B - Built for dinorwic Quarries||Date Built: 1898. Works No. 680.|
|Built in 1898 and originally named Wellington, the engine was purchased from the Dinorwic Quarries in 1965 and stripped down by its owner Alan White in 1969. Due to changing circumstances, while much work has been done on components, the loco was not reconstructed. Following an agreement between Alan White and Bala Lake Railway, all the parts have been moved to Llanuwchllyn to enable full rebuild to take place|
|Agreement has now been reached with the Bala Lake Railway for the locomotive to be re-assembled as a joint venture with Alan White on an 'as and when' basis. the rebuild is expected to take two years.|
