Holy War, a narrow gauge tank locomotive built by Hunslet Ltd of Leeds, had the unique distinction of being the last steam locomotive to work in a Welsh quarry.

This booklet tells a little of this locomotive’s adventures from 1902 when she was delivered to the giant Dinorwig Quarry, Llanberis to the present day and her work on the Bala Lake Railway.
