The loco's rolling chassis awaiting the return of the boiler in May 2017 as its overhaul continues. The work has involved making a new cylinder block as the original had suffered cracking that was beyond repair.

Photographed early one morning of an Autumn Gala day, 2392 starts from Grosmont shed with the cylinder drain cocks open. At the time it was running in North Eastern Railway lined black livery, and very smart, too!
