Jennifer is an 0-6-0 tank locomotive built by Hudswell Clarke & Co in 1942. It spent its working life as Samuel Fox & Co Ltd's no. 20. It has been donated to Llangollen Railway Trust Ltd., and was moved to the line from Winson Engineering of Daventry in 2001. The Trust is funding restoration as finances permit.

The tank side plates refer to its former owner S Fox & Co Ltd of Stocksbridge, near Sheffield where it was No.20.

the Jennifer nameplates have yet to be fitted to the cabside.

 

All being well the engine will be off on hire to the Colne Valley Railway in Essex next week.

 

Another successful restoration at Llangollen from a basic incomplete kit of parts received back in 2002. Well done the lads in the loco works for coming good with a "no-hoper".
