We were very fortunate in that David Toyne from Auckland, New Zealand, was kind enough to look up the Tasmanian records for our engine when he popped over for a holiday a couple of years ago.

Every engine that was imported into Tasmania was given a unique "Plant" number. 24436's was E1937, and can still be seen stamped on the LH hornplate. David managed to find the logbook with the engine's details in, and was kind enough to take some photos and send over to us. They make interesting reading!
