No. 2 was one of the 2' gauge locos

It was a Wren class engine, built by Kerr Stuart in 1918, no. 3114,
Prior to being used at Fernilee, it was owned by Cardiff Corporation Water Dept. After Fernilee reservoir was finished, Lehane McKenzie and Shand took it to their depot in Darley Dale.

This loco has survived into preservation, and is now at the Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway in Wales, but isn't on display.

I believe (2014) that this loco is now at Devil's Bridge on the Vale of Rheidol Railway offering Driver experiences. Has also been at Threlkeld Museum (may still be there).
