This little locomotive, built by Neilson, Reid & Co in 1901 as works number 5907 was built for the Bass Brewery in Burton-upon-Trent, who operated a fairly sizeable railway around the town using its own fleet of locomotives and wagons, and even at least one carriage for inspections, dignitaries etc. It was Number 9 in the fleet, and today is the only surviving steam locomotive from the railway, and, along with one of the carriages and a petrol locomotive later used are on display at the National Brewery Centre in Burton-upon-Trent. The red triangle seen on the locomotive is the symbol of Bass
