'Jana' was delivered new to Derek Crouch (Contractors) Ltd at Widdrington opencast site, and continued in use there into the 1990s. Unlike most Stephensons it was fitted with the Cummins 14 litre engine. Coming in to the possession of YEC along with several others, it was deployed on hire at the Ford Motor Company's plant at Bridgend, from where it was aquired by Andrew.

'Jana' was subsequently used extensively as a hire loco by RMS, and when returned to Andrew's collection, was in a much run-down condition was awaiting time for restoration, though run-able at a pinch.

On May 18th 2009 it was delivered to Blodwell for storage but during 2010 it was decided to exchange the locomotive for another machine with better long term prospects.
