In 1993 it moved to the NRM at York, and in 2003 attended the opening of the DPS depot at Barrow Hill. In recent years, it has been an exhibit at Locomotion, Shildon, but also had a period on display at the Ribble Steam Railway where it is seen in the picture (right). The loco was built at the (now closed) Dick Kerr Works in Preston.

'DELTIC' has since returned to Shildon.
