No.5197 was completed in 1945 and exported directly to China in 1946 for use by the Chinese State Railways. The engine became part of the KD6 class and was numbered KD6.463. It worked around Fushun in the Chinese coal fields until withdrawal in the early 1990s. In 1995 the engine was saved from scrapping by Derek Foster and brought to the UK for restoration. After overhaul on the Llangollen Railway, it returned to traffic in 1998. Subsequently purchased by Greg Wilson, it moved to the Churnet Valley Railway to join his other S160 No.6046. The engine has visited many preserved lines on visits away from its home at the CVR, where it can be seen in operation today.
