Story

78019 was built by Darlington Works and was allocated to Kirkby Stephen, working on local and banking duties through the Lake District. She was withdrawn in 1966 and sold to Barry Scrapyard, being moved there the next year. In 1973 she was moved to the Severn Valley Railway, but restoration was never carried out there due to more pressing projects. A contract was signed to finish the restoration at the Great Central and operate there until her boiler ticket expires in 2014.
