One of the two surviving well tanks, Nº30587, in the former Pullman Car Shop at Preston Park where, along with other steam locomotives and rolling stock in the National Collection, she was stored for a number of years. With a 2-Bil motor coach in the background for company, Nº30587 still carries her final BR livery.

Following restoration in 2003, Nº30587 was a proud participant at Railfest, celebrating the two hundredth anniversary of the first steam railway locomotive, in York during 2004.

30587 Boiler backhead detail, photographed whilst at York. It is interesting to compare the interior of this vintage steam loco with much later locos. The technology mostly remains the same!
