K 176 was built by the Victorian Railways' Newport Workshops in 1941 to the successful K-class 2-8-0 locomotive design for branch-line work.

K 176 had been plinthed for many years at Deniliquin, NSW, where it was displayed on the old turntable. (Deniliquin is the terminus of a broad-gauge branch line which crosses the border from Victoria.)  K 176 was subsequently acquired by the Seymour Railway Heritage Centre for future restoration.

Here is a useful Wikipedia link which provides further information about the Victorian Railway K-class locomotives.
