Myrtle May was built by Nelson Hoey in the name of his wife. Myrtle Mays parts were cast at the Toowoomba foundry. Based on the production drawings of the 1915 C16 Steam locomotive, Myrtle May is a smaller scale model of the C16s, originally designed in 1903 as an improved 4-8-0 loco built by various firms. 15 of the full-sized Locos were built by the Toowoomba Foundry for Queensland Rail. The last of the C16s was commissioned on 21 April 1915 and withdrawn from service on 28 May, 1964, after travelling 1,134,533 miles around Queensland. The last surviving full scale C16 is currently being restored at Downs Steam.
