It was withdrawn from service at Oldham in August 1960 and purchased privately by a Lancashire civil engineering company. It was restored as No 1122, at White Bear station, Adlington, on the line between St Helens and Blackburn, and remained in the station yard for many years. The station itself had been closed by BR in January 1960.

It was later to be found at Steamtown at Carnforth numbered 1300 where it was returned to steam for a number of years in the later 1980s.

It moved to the Ribble Steam Railway in December 2009 where it steamed again before being loaned out for use on heritage railways.

The locomotive which is normally based on the East Lancs Railway will spend 2018 on the Spa Valley Railway.
