Built by Beyer Peacock in 1870 with a works No of 1830, the 0-6-0ST Locomotive was bought by Rothervale Colliery to work at their coal mines at Treeton, South Yorkshire.

The loco was rebuilt in 1910 by the Yorkshire Engine Company, and subsequently scrapped in 1959.

Both nameplates from this loco were purchased by Bernard Mottram, and one of them is on loan to Chasewater Railway Museum.

After restoration by Peter Stamper, the plate is now proudly displayed in the Museum building.
