This industrial type locomotive was purchased in 1911 by the Engineer-in-Chief's Department of South Australia to work on the Woakwima Range Main Drainage Channel, near Beachport in the South-East.
When this work on the project ceased in 1916, the engine was transferred to the South Australian Railways, who numbered it 260 and sent it to their Northern Division.
