History and use
This nameplate was one of two nameplates fitted to C19 Class No.702 built in 1923 at Ipswich Railway Workshops. It was the 100th steam locomotive built at Ipswich and the name celebrates that. Locomotive No.702 was written off in 1962.
The naming of steam locomotives on Queensland Railways was rare with only seven steam locomotives ever carrying a name.
