Peter,

I know that the mill purchased Hunslet 1199 new in 1915.  Was there an earlier locomotive?

Found an 1896 Trove reference that states the Nerang Central Sugar Mill,
located at Benowa, had a tramway connection with the QR line at Molendinar
right from the start of crushing in 1896. This 1896 date is somewhat more
definite than my earlier research. The same Trove also gives details of the
tramway, mill process, machinery and building.
