'D2892' is a close relative of D2899, also being built by the Yorkshire Engine Company. It was donated to the Railway in the mid-1980s by Pilkington Glass. [anybody know any more?]

After many years' service at Llangollen, the engine gradually got smokier to the point where smoke from the crankcase breathers obscured the view ahead and gassed the driver. The engine finally expired in October 1998, although fortunately it was repairable. After a protracted rebuild it re-entered service as Llangollen yard shunter, and was soon repainted into green as fictitious class 02 no. D2892.
