National Railway Museum, Adelaide

#2 Skipper, an 0-6-2 tank engine built by Perry Engineering at Mile End, South Australia (#1850-46-1 of 1946; 16 tonnes, 610mm gauge), was withdrawn from service with Bundaberg's Millaquin Sugar Mill in 1980. In 1981 it returned to SA (Mile End Railway Museum), was eventually restored in 2003, and now serves as a beacon for the passing public for the National Railway Museum.
