34101 Hartland was built in 1950 at Eastleigh Works (The only Eastleigh built light pacific preserved) and was one of the last to be rebuilt at there in 1960 just six years before it was withdrawn from service in July 1966 having covered only a further 330,106 miles. At the time of being rebuilt it was however thought that it would be in service until 1987 and the rebuild could be financially justified.

Hartland was sold by British Railways to Woodham Brother for scrap and arrived at Barry in October 1966 and stayed there until July 1978.
It was bought by Richard Shaw and moved to his engineering works (Shaw Metals Ltd) in Derby. The restoration was completed at Loughborough on the Great Central Railway by 1993.
In 1995 it moved to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway where it ran for just a few years before being taken out of service for a ten-year overhaul.
Richard Shaw died in 2014 and the locomotive is now owned by his wife and daughters.
After standing in the open in sidings for a long period the overhaul on 34101 began at Grosmont on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. It is anticipated that the locomotive will return to steam on the NYMR in late 2017 it was anticipated that the boiler fitting would take place in the autumn following firebox repairs at the South Devon Railway.
The boiler was returned to the NYMR in October 2018.
In March 2021 it was expected that the locomotive would be back in traffic in 2022.
