Built at Newton le Willows, England in 1871 and worked in the Tokyo and Yokohama area until 1880 after that time moved around until it arrived in Osaka area in 1892. It was renumbered as No 150 in 1909.

In 1911 it was sold to the Shimabara Railway where it became their No 1. It was recognised as being of historical importance and in 1930 was returned to the Government Railways in exchange for another loco. Since then it has been preserved and exhibited until the present where it can be seen at Omiya.
