This locomotive was built by the John Fowler plant at Leeds in England in 1923. The locomotive was used at the Kiama Quarries limited for blue metal haulage at the town of Kiama until 1941 when the quarry was shutdown.
After the Quarry had closed this locomotive was sold to the Marsden Weir Museum at Goulburn and then the locomotive was then purchased by a private group for preservation.
In 1985, the Kiama light railway group purchased the locomotive for a proposed tourist railway operation at Kiama which did not eventuate.
The locomotive was donated to the ILRMS on the 28th August 1998 and is now awaiting restoration.
