De Winton Locomotive

This vertical boilered loco was originally built by the De Winton Company who produced a small number of these fascinating locos mainly for use in the quarries of Wales.

They were of a simple design with a twin cylinder engine mounted on the boiler and directly coupled to a twin crank axle.

The Puffin was built in 1892 and worked at the Brundit & Co. quarry until 1934.
