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.Since arriving home, the generator and traction motors were sent away for overhaul, cleaning and service and meanwhile, various work was undertaken on the locomotive including the bogies, power unit and general maintenance. Following a full repaint, D5054 was relaunched to traffic at the Sulzer Theme Day on Saturday 16th of February 2019 plus additional running on Sunday the 17th with 33109.
