Jack Lane is a modern "Quarry Tank" built by the Hunslet Engine Co. Ltd., not in Leeds but at Graham Lee's premises at Statfold Barn in Staffordshire. It carries the Hunslet builder's number 3904 of 2005.

The Loco visited the WHR Ltd for the "Hunslet: Generations" Gala on 3-5 May 2008, and subsequently was hired for the summer season at the WHR Ltd arriving on Fri 11th July. It is expected to return to Statfold Barn after the August bank holiday.

It visited the Welsh Highland Railway for the 2015 superpower, where it operated a slate shunt experience in Dinas Yard.
