The 24 has always been a solid performer but is currently stopped and undergoing a major overhaul including work to the main generator, proactive maintenance rather than the result of a failure. Other projects and operational demands have slowed progress on 5054 but the generator and power unit are nearly ready to be split so that the former can be sent away for overhaul.
As of mid-July 2014, D5054 was transported by road to Barrow Hill for the generator to be split from the power unit and sent away for overhaul. Arranging this work proved difficult and, as of early 2017, the loco returned to Bury.
Work has already begun on D5054 since arriving home. The generator and traction motors will be going away for cleaning and service and meanwhile, various work will be undertaken on the locomotive including the bogies, power unit and general maintenance.
