This Locomotive was purchased by CSR and most likely started it's working life at Nausori Mill in Fiji in 1883. The presence of this loco and identification are somewhat tentative.  There is evidence of a Fowler Loco being sent from Fiji to Sydney in 1893 and from Sydney to Mackay shortly after.  By 1904 it was at Goondi Mill at Geraldton (now Innisfail). The fate of this loco is unknown.
