In 1946 WAGR purchased 14 locomotives built for war service. These were Pacifics of very similar design to the Sudan Railways 220 class. In Western Australia they were equipped for oil burning. One of these, the last, was, in 1957, converted to a 4-6-4T intended for suburban passenger working but saw only limited service.
