Built in 1908 for North Eton Mill. Was rebuilt in 1930. It was apparently built with a wheel configuration of 0-4-2ST but was converted to 06-0ST via modification to the rear frames.


By 1963 it had gone out of service and stored in the North Eton Mill yard. In 1970 it was sold to Ron Aubrey..  It was on display in a tourist park near Buderim on the Sunshine Coast in the 1970's.  It was later sold to Brisbane collector, Graham Chapman. It was sighted at Kallangur in Brisbane in 2003. The boiler and saddletank were stored nearby. In 2007 it was moved to Narangba.
