This loco started its working life at the Homebush Mill. After the mill closed in 1921 it was transferred to Victoria Mill in Ingham. It was used as a regular passenger and goods freight train from Lucinda to Ingham, Stone river and Long Pocket from 1922 to 1932. The loco transported cane and maintenance gangs through the Victoria Mill network from 1932 to 1976. It was restored to full working order in 1978. It is used as a Tourist train on odd occasions and when not being used is displayed at the Mill Entrance in a shed.
