We are proud to present the stunning Bachmann Narrow Gauge OO9 Scale model of Quarry Hunslet Steam Locomotive ‘Alice’ in Dinorwic Quarry Red livery. Barely larger than a 9V battery, this diminutive model still packs a punch with its diecast boiler and running plate, accompanied by a wealth of separately fitted details including handrails, valves, springs, brake shoes and cab controls. The 0-4-0ST wheel formation is faithfully modelled, with authentically-profiled wheels running in metal bearings ensuring smooth running, powered by a coreless motor with flywheel, and with a 6 Pin DCC decoder socket for those wishing to use the models with a DCC system. NEM coupling pockets feature at both ends, into which standard OO9 scale couplings are fitted.

‘ALICE’ HISTORY (with grateful thanks to The Quarry Hunslet website)

Built in 1902 with works number 780, ‘Alice’ is the sister engine to Holy War (No. 779). She worked at the Dinorwic Quarries until about 1960. She was then used for spare parts at the quarry and purchased as a source of spare parts by the then-owner of Holy War. In 1977 the remaining parts were gathered together at the Bala Lake Railway.

In 1987 the remains were purchased by Chris Scott and work started on restoration. The remains were later moved to the owner’s garage, the Ffestiniog Railway and then to the Leighton Buzzard Railway who agreed to finance the new boiler. Alice returned to steam in 1994.
