Whilst having a larger 0-6-0 wheelset, the Class still has a 'Go Anywhere' BR Route Availability of 1 which makes 03062 very useful for some of the tighter areas of track around the sheds and sidings in Bury, particularly the approach to Bury Transport Museum and parts of the Buckley Wells carriage works.
The loco ran in BR Blue as 2062 for many years but more recently carries the BR Green livery, with yellow and black wasp stripes until 2015, now running in an early all over green with number shown as "D.2062".
There are a wide range of events at the East Lancashire Railway ranging from Family and Education, Re-enactments, Sci-Fi, Transport and Collector's Fairs.
