Built by the North British Locomotive Company [under Queens Park (Glasgow) works number 26244/1948] as a standard industrial 4-8-2T tank for Tweefontein United Collieries (Minaar) and later converted in the mine workshops to improve its range of operation. It had been transferred to WCC in the late-1970s.
