Fate Scrapped after 1969.

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 being retired.
