It was originally designed and built at GWR’s Swindon works as an oil-burning locomotive to demonstrate the technology and intended for light passenger service near Bristol. Unfortunately, because problems in the design it was never used on as intended and instead remained at Swindon until rebuilt as a conventional coal-burning tank engine in 1905 where it lived out its life as a works shunter until finally scrapped in 1911.
