This engine spent its working life in the Christchurch area. Many of these engines were used in the Canterbury plains to drive threshing machines, which separated the grains from the stalks and husks. They were also used in pairs to pull ploughs across the paddocks. It was a common sight to see these machines on country roads, pulling a ‘train’ which might consist of a threshing machine, a caravan and a water cart from farm to farm.
