It is unknown where this loco started
service however it was purchased from Sydney machinery merchants,
Cameron, Sutherland and Seward Pty Limited from their Melbourne Branch
in 1922. The loco was named "Dinty" and served on the Gorge line for
over 20 years. The engine was also used for social functions usually
involving the Gorge State School. By the 1940's it was out of use
and was either sold or scrapped in the late 1940's.
