Remarks:     These two locomotives, originally bought new by the Public Works Department, were aquired by NZR in December 1938 and used on construction and duplication work. After World War 2, both locos were stored at Otahuhu Railway Workshops and finally scrapped in 1954. One locomotive, No.529 was a slightly lighter engine at 7.6 tons, with 6" x 10" cylinders and 20" drivers.
