Career and PreservationEdit

The locomotive primarily worked heavy freight throughout TGR's territory, and it continued in this role until 1962 when it was withdrawn and it's sister E2 was scrapped. The locomotive remained in storage until 1971 when it was plinthed in Deloraine to celebrate the centenary of the arrival of railways to the area. It remains in good condition under the care of the Apex club.
