In 1964 it was sold to the Puffing Billy Preservation Society as a static display until 1986 which saw the commencement of restoration and had been undergoing rebuilding ever since in the Belgrave workshops until 2004 when it triumphantly returned to service, restored to its 1946 to 1954 condition and all-over black livery.
