Proserpine Mill No.8

Privately owned

 

 

Photo required

This 0-6-2T locomotive was constructed by Perry Engineering, Adelaide as their builder's number 8403.39.1 of 1939.  It worked at Proserpine Mill where it was No.8 on the locomotive roster.

Proserpine Mill No.8 entered preservation in 1974 when it was privately purchased together with Thomas Green B/N 219 of 1895. These two locomotives were reported as based at Strathewen, Victoria, in 1975.  I understand they have since been relocated to Romsey, Victoria.

Contributions of further information or photographs for this locomotive are welcome.
