deWintons No 6 and No 7

Penrhyn had seven vertical-boilered deWintons for quarry or port work built from 1876.

The sixth VB deWinton was Georgina built in 1877 and the seventh Ina was built 1878.Georgina and Ina were both built for port work and were larger than the earlier ones used in the quarry.

From 1883, both locos were moved to the quarry when Gwynedd and Lilian were delivered from Hunslet. Georgina was irreparably damaged by a rock fall at Sebastopol Level in 1904.Georgina had flat frames but carried the larger boiler, making her unique.

Ina had curved frames and the same dimensions as George Henry in the NG Museum at Towyn.
