This locomotive is currently being built by 'back-converting' Hall Class 4942 'Maindy Hall' which was purchased specifically for this purpose.

Much of the major structural alterations have been undertaken off-site and the locomotive has now returned to Didcot for a simple restoration from Barry hulk condition!
