It was withdrawn from service in January 1968 and sold to Woodham Brother as scrap and arrived in the yard at Barry in September 1968. It left Barry in September 1979 after being there for eleven years.

It was bought from Woodham Brothers for £10,000 by 92212 Holdings Ltd, and moved to the Great Central Railway at Loughborough in September 1979. Prior to this a group of prospective owners had contacted the Severn Valley Railway (SVR) in 1976 with a view to basing the locomotive on the SVR.

The restoration of 92212 was completed at Loughborough in September 1996.

It was hired by the SVR for the winter of 2001 and again for the summer of 2011.

92212 was later purchased by Jeremy Hosking whilst the locomotive was being overhauled on the Mid Hants Railway where it is now based.

It returned to service on the Mid Hants Railway in September 2011 but was then hired by the Bluebell railway to provide cover whilst that railway was short of operating locomotives.

In 2013 92212 returned to the Mid Hants Railway.

The boiler certificate will expire in June 2019 after which the boiler will be overhauled at Crewe with the aim in having the locomotive back in steam quickly.

In December 2018 it was announced that the locomotive would be fitted with the boiler from 92245.
