History

Built in 1888, it was possible sent to AM McCann in Melbourne.  It was at Habana Sugar Mill around 1891.  Its presence here relies on a local anecdote from local Farmer and author Ken Manning.  In 1900 the loco was in use with W.A. Builders Lime & Stone Co. Ltd in Subiaco. They operated a 3 mile railway from their quarries to Subiaco. It is not known what became of this locomotive.
