Rescued from Barry scrapyard by Telford Development Corporation in 1973, No. 5619 has had a lengthy stay at the Bodmin & Wenford Railway after overhaul at the Flour Mill.

Butterley is staging a special weekend for No. 5619 to run alongside GWR ‘Small Prairie’ 2-6-2T No. L150, and Peckett ‘M5’ 0-4-0ST W/No. 1163 Whitehead, which spent its entire working life in industrial service in South Wales.
