One of the BR built engines, No. 69023, survives and is owned by the North Eastern Locomotive Preservation Group. It has worked on several preserved railways. It has been named Joem, a combination of the locomotive's former owner's parents: Joseph and Emily, though it never carried this name in service. In contrast to the normal black paint finish, this loco operates in a hybrid NER/LNER/BR apple green paint scheme. It re-entered service in 2010 and visited many heritage railways. No. 69023 is now based on the Wensleydale Railway but returns to NELPG's base at Hopetown Carriage Works, Darlington for winter maintenance.
