7027 Thornbury Castle was built in August 1949. Its first shed allocation was Plymouth Laira. Its March 1959 shed allocation was Old Oak Common. Its last shed allocation was Reading. It was withdrawn in December 1963 and arrived at Woodham Brothers scrapyard in Barry, South Wales in May 1964. It was sold to the then Birmingham Railway Museum and left as the 23rd departure from Barry in August 1972. After being purchased by Pete Waterman, she is in store at the Crewe Heritage Centre.

One set of name and number plates for the 7027 are mounted on a wall of the main hall of The Castle School in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire.
