In 1878, a Model Locomotive Engine was made by Francis H. Davis, who was apprenticed to the Phoenix Foundry. He built the model with his fellow apprentices James Campbell Brown (1857-1936), Louis Ludwig Ballhausen (1857-1912), Samuel John Morgan (1856-1939) and Herman Recard Warlond (1857-1948).
The steam engine was donated to the Ballarat School of Mines Museum, and is now part of the Ballarat Historical Society Collection, which is held at the Gold Museum.
