Purchased by Marian Mill in 1911 for
use on the Mount Jukes line. However the locomotive proved unsuitable
for this purpose due to the long wheelbase which proved unsuitable on
the track due to the sharp curves. As a result it was kept at the
mill being utilised for yard duties. It was fitted with a new
boiler and remained in service until 1968. It was scrapped soon after
