Prototype Info

Taffson Evans and Jenkins of the Rhonnda Valley supplied five saddle tanks to the Vowchurch Quarry company for use on their 15" tramway. The first, works number 20, was built in 1894, a pair followed in 1898 and finally another pair in 1901. The tramway was built to transport slate from the Churchwater quarries to the GWR interchange at Lower Vowchurch, on the Longtown branch of the Hay Valley Line.

After the tramway closed in 1958 number 23, Saffron, was stranded on the upper levels of the quarry. Rescued in 1977 she is now preserved by the Heywood Foundation.

All of the above is courtesy of Brian Clarke, and the book 'The Slate Railway to Churchwater', and entirely ficticious.
