History

 

Delivered to Marian Mill in 1896. In 1909 it was used on the Southern side of the Pioneer River.  In 1929 it was used to transport cane on the isolated Tannalo line. In 1959 the loco was transferred to the Cattle Creek Mill with the Tannalo Line. It was apparently not used and was scrapped around 1959.
