During the mid 1960’s and again in the 1980’s, Doug Carrington, founding member of what became the “Maid Marian” Locomotive Fund visited the Dinorwig Quarry in Llanberis taking 8mm film and a considerable number of slides.

Much of Doug’s historic material is featured on this 45 minute DVD, telling the story of Hunslet “Maid Marian, who together with her crew and stable mates worked the precarious rail network of the Dinorwig Quarry in North Wales.
