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.
