Andrew Barclay 0-6-0 tank engine Gertrude came out of the factory in Kilmarnock, Scotland in 1918 as one of three sisters. Its first owner was the Sydenham ironstone quarry in Oxfordshire, England, where it worked until 1925. Gertrude was then transferred to the Springvale steel mill in Bilston, where it worked in 1959. Max Sinclair saved both Gertrude and The Doll, but could not save the third sister Winifred as that locomotive had been scrapped around 1939 to provide spare parts for the other two sisters. It took a long time to restore Gertrude, but in 2009 it pulled a passenger train on the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway (WHHR) in Porthmadog, Wales. These days, it shares the WHHR workload with the last original Welsh Highland Railway steam locomotive, Hunslet 2-6-2 tank engine Russell. I spotted Gertrude resting in the engine shed at Gelert's Farm Station, as my locomotive that day was Russell.
