Maid Marian is 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive built by Hunslet of Leeds in 1903. Until 1964 she worked slate trucks in the famous Dinorwic slate quarries. When these closed the Maid was purchased by a group of enthusiasts and is now based at the Bala Lake Railway where she shares the passenger hauling duties with other Hunslets, Holy War, Alice and George B from the Dinorwic Quarry and Winifred from the Penrhyn Quarry.
