No. 44806 was built at Derby in 1944. The locomotive was based at many sheds on the Midland route, most notable at Lostock Hall (10D) until it was withdrawn in 1968. In preservation, for a while she carried the name "Magpie", the ITV childrens' magazine programme of the same name arranging to have a locomotive named in competition with BBC's "Blue Peter". Arriving at the NYMR from the Llangollen Railway in 2013, after extensive work at Grosmont she returned to service in summer 2016.
