Initially the locomotive was based on the Plym Valley Railway before moving to the Bodmin & Wenford Railway in 1990. In 2002 the locomotive moved to the Llangollen Railway.
It returned to steam in 2005 and ran until 2015 when the boiler certificate expired after which it was overhauled again at Llangollen.
It had been thought that it might be back in service by the end of 2017 but it will be early 2018 when it is back in traffic.
During early February 2018 the locomotive moved again under its own steam around the Llangollen shed yard. Later in that month it had further trials before having its final section of boiler cladding and smokebox support struts fitted prior to the locomotive being painted.
It was reported in December 2019 that the locomotive had been purchased by Nick Gilbert and Steve Andrews. The locomotive will remain at the Llangollen Railway.
3802 was taken out of traffic in 2020 when a number of jobs needed to be completed on the brake gear and motion. This work was completed in 2021 and the locomotive underwent a test run on the Llangollen Railway in July 2021 following a final steam examination in the previous month.
Following featuring the Autumn Steam Gala at the Great Central Railway in October 2021 the locomotive was transported to Carnforth to have its tyres turned.
