Her first owners were Messrs Dunn & Shute of Newport Town Dock. In 1903 she was purchased by the Alexandra Docks Railway. This was absorbed into the Great Western Railway in 1923.
In July 1932, the GWR sold her to the Netherseal colliery, Burton-on-Trent. She changed hands again in 1947, going to Alders (Tamworth) Ltd.
Trojan is now preserved at the Didcot Railway Centre.
