92219 was built at Swindon in January 1960 and spent all of its working life under BR ownership based at Cardiff. It moved from Cardiff Canton to Cardiff East Dock a month before the former depot closed.

Date Arrived Depot
January 1960 Cardiff Canton
August 1962 Cardiff East Dock

It was withdrawn from service in August 1965 and sold as scrap to Woodham Brothers. It arrived at the scrapyard in Barry in October 1965 and remained there until May 1985.

Despite being the second youngest member of the class (the youngest being 92220 Evening Star) it was in a poor state when it was taken from Barry to the Peak Railway Society at Buxton where it was cosmetically restored.

After being at Buxton for many years the locomotive moved to the Midland Railway Centre where it was stored for another prolonged period.

Around 2012 92219 was moved to the Stainmore Railway Company at Kirkby Stephen East Heritage Centre where it is planned to eventually restore the locomotive although little has been done to date.

Following a disagreement between the owners and Stainmore Railway Company 92219 moved with some other rolling stock to the Wensleydale Railway in April 2014.
