Originally delivered to the Rowntree chocolate factory in York in April 1960 and became No3. Twenty years later in 1980 it was moved to the Rowntree factory in Fawdon near Newcastle where it was renumbered to No2. It was surplus to requirements in 1987 and went into preservation on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. It did not see any use on the Moors and was loaned out to the Middleton Railway in Leeds in 1991. In March 2006 it was moved to the National railway Museum at Shildon. It was purchased by DVLR members in 2013 and moved to Murton, York.
