In 1877, the North Ipswich Railway Workshops built a one-off 2-4-0 steam locomotive entering service on the Southern & Western Railway numbered 36. In 1880 it was sent to the then isolated Bundaberg line and renumbered 3. In 1890, as part of the Queensland Railways renumbering scheme, it was renumbered 132. It was sold to McArdle & Thompson in February 1881, being resold to Fairymead Sugar Mill in 1892.[1]
