Cover: Statfold Barn’s Hunslet Wren ‘Jennie’ built in 2008, is some 36 years younger than the Bala Lake Railway but acquitted itself well at the ‘Bala at 50’ event, recalling another Wren that worked on the mid-Wales line in earlier days. The inset shows one of the UK’s very rare 18-inch gauge lines at Bicton in Devon, a line which has changed a lot over the years but survives to this day,

some 60 years after its creation. Photos: Andrew Charman & James Waite
