Built in 1902 for the Tasmanian Government Railways, C22 spent many years working on all kinds of trains throughout Tasmania. C22 ran 1 411 500 km (882 188 miles) until October 1960 when it was withdrawn from service.

C22 was purchased by the museum in 1967 and restored to working order for the opening of the museum in 1983. It hauled passenger trains monthly at the museum until May 1999 when it was decided that boiler repairs were required and the loco was taken out of service. The majority of the work was undertaken by volunteer labour, and this resulted in the process taking substantially longer than anticipated.

This work was completed in late 2009, and the loco was then tested and certified prior to returning to regular service in mid 2010
