A major factor in the minimal use on the SVR before departing was the locomotive's weight of 94 tons and axle load of 20 tons 5cwt which made it too heavy for the line at the time - in particular it was not allowed over Victoria Bridge with a full boiler<ref>[[Bibliography#Books|Marshall (1989)]] p. 181.</ref>
After a period of ownership by [[The Waterman Railway Heritage Trust|Pete Waterman]], the locomotive was bought by Jeremy Hosking and was transferred to the Royal Scot Locomotive and General Trust <ref>[ Royal Scot Locomotive and General Trust web page] Retrieved 25 February 2015.</ref>.
