Germany (Orenstein and Koppel 0-4-0T)

Built in Germany by Orenstein and Koppel in 1914, this loco was on a ship bound for Australia when World War I was declared. This was Millaquin Sugar Mill's first steam locomotive, operating over a track length at the time of only 2 miles.

It served Millaquin until 1951 after which it was used in the Qunaba Mill area until its retirement. It was donated to the East Bundaberg Rotary club for placement in the park at Kendalls Flat, where after approximately 30 years and several floods it was obtained by the society in 1987 for restoration. The recommissioning of Germany was held on 21st October 1990.

Germany was out-of-service for some time but is now back in tourist train operation.
