MATE SUSAN is a "Millie" class 0-4-0 side tank built by Roundhouse in Doncaster, and she entered service on the Swallowdale Railway in 2010.

On subsequent visits to the SdR's Low End works the locomotive was fitted with a ne water top-up system and water level sight-glass. Also slide-bars were fitted to the simplified Stephenson slip-eccentric valve gear.

Originally an open-cabbed design, a full cab has been fitted by the SdR in Low End Works with a lamp bracket installed on the cab back-plate.
