Karen was built by Peckett and Sons of Bristol in 1942 (works number 2024). One of three locomotives built for the Selukwe Peak Light Railway in Rhodesia, Karen was bought by a consortium of Welsh Highland Members in 1976. After restoration, she entered service in 1983 and gave a decade of reliable service until the boiler became due for a major overhaul.
Karen is currently out of service but can be seen as a static museum exhibit at the WHHR.
This model was discontinued at the end of December 2017.
