|It was transported to Auckland by truck in 1997 where it has been tidied up and had a new steam certificate approved. It was repainted from the dark green colour it was received in to Auckland blue. It also had one short foray to the Silverstream Railway Society tracks in Upper Hutt for duties as a friend of Thomas on the first Thomas the Tank weekend run by that society.
The little Bagnall is a favourite on depot open days. It is used to give rides around the depot at Parnell. As it is the smallest engine owned by Mainline it the most child friendly. The locomotive is also used to assist in lighting up the oil-fired locomotives. Steam is passed from the Bagnall into the larger locomotive to build up enough pressure to heat the oil and operate the atomiser for the oil firing.
It had its first public run with Mainline Steam on the 29th of May 1994.
