The locomotive was delivered in 1925 by La Meuse to the metal factory Overpelt-Hoboken. She was used as shuntingengine on the site. In the early eighties she was acquired by mr. Jans. He left the engine availbable for the Toeristische Trein Zolder (Tourist Train Zolder). After the closure of the tourist branch the engine was stored in Mons, in the south of Belgium. In 1994 the MBS started the negotiations with Mr. Jans. The engine was bought in 1995. In 1998 the restauration started, where the choice was made to put the engine in the colours of the former Nederlandsche Centraal Spoorwegmaatschappij (Dutch Central Railroadcompany), according to prescribtions from 1910. In 1999 the engine was set at service.
