History and use
The locomotive has a 4-8-2 configuration and features the livery of the Deutsche Reichsbahn (German Imperial Railway). This model is 08 1001 which was built in 1931 and later used by VES M-Halle, the research and development branch of the Deutsche Reichsbahn. This model has a wooden base with grooves for the wheels. The base has two handles made from cotton to lift the model along with the base.

The T-House model rail collection is a collection of national and international significance due to the size, quality and scope of the collection.

The collection, assembled over 30 years from the 1970s to the 1990s, holds 10 000+ models of locomotives, carriages and wagons. The collection is in excellent – often mint – condition. The models were collected by Mr Marsden Williams, who was born, raised and spent his life in the Wollongong area. Mr Williams was a business man who was renowned for philanthropy, he was an intensely private man, who nevertheless was well connected across the Australian business world. His 40 year fascination for model railways reflected his own interest in precision engineering, and his financial success allowed him to pursue his interest to a remarkable extent.
