Beddgelert is a half size model of the North Wales Narrow Gauge Railway’s locomotive which ran on the F&WHR. Originally named David Curwen, the locomotive was built by David Curwen in 1980. The locomotive is awaiting restoration and is currently out of service, but you can find the loco on display at the Museum/Entrance to Fairbourne Station.
