Built by British Railways at Doncaster Works in 1959, D2062 was released to traffic in July of the same year. The loco was very much an Eastern machine, working on both BR(NE) and BR(E) regions. New to Selby, the loco was also based at York, Hull Dairycoates, Staveley (Barrow Hill) and Norwich Thorpe being withdrawn 12th October 1980.

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".
