3814 was stored on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway awaiting restoration for a long period.

In the summer of 2016 the tender was moved to Llangollen for its restoration to be completed.

The tender will be attached to 6880 Betton Grange until that locomotive has its own tender.

In September 2018 the locomotive moved out of the Grosmont yard for the first time in more than 30 years. It was towed to Pickering where it was put on a low loader and transported to Llangollen where its restoration is planned to be completed.
