Historical Notes: This engine was built at the Petone Railway Workshops in 1905. It was designed by G A Pearson for use on the Rimutaka Incline. Because of faults in the mechanism it was modified with an outside exhaust, and an additional expansion dome, ca 1912; broken up in 1917. See "Register of New Zealand Railways steam locomotives, 1863-1971" by W G Lloyd; and for further information regarding this locomotive see PA1-q-101 (Godber album vol 108, page 16).
