One of two JA Maffei locos used at Plane Creek Mill. It was known as "Coronation" and "Billy."

The Loco went out of service and was sold in 1973 to Bruce MacDonald of the Marsden Museum of Historic Engines in Goulburn, NSW. The locomotive collection at the museum was dispersed in the late 1970's due to financial and maintenance problems.

The remains of the loco are presently located on a property at Woodhouselee (North of Goulburn).
