K1 (and it's sister K2) were built for the North East Dundas tramway in Tasmania 1909 and is recognised as being the first locomotive built to the Garratt patent, although they differed in arrangement from the original concept (compounding, placement of cylinders at opposite ends of bogie) - see the Wikipedia page under at 'TGR K Class'.

There are four much more modern Garratts currently at the Welsh Highland Railway (No's 87, 109, 138 and 140) but these are much larger, NGG16 2-6-6-2 locomotives. No. 143 was the last Garratt locomotive built by Beyer Peacock, built in 1953, although there were several more of this this type built as recently as 1998 by Hunslet Taylor in South Africa.
