The loco was secured for preservation in December 1993 and has been a longstanding member of the diesel fleet at the East Lancshire Railway. 47402 carried BR Blue livery as '1501' for many years, becoming 47402 still in BR Blue and more recently returned to original condition in two-tone BR Green with small yellow warning panels.
D1501 visited the Nene Valley Railway for their Diesel Gala, 16th-18th of May 2014 along with 40135 and 37324 'Clydebridge'.
As of Summer 2016, D1501 was stopped and a full top end overhaul of the Sulzer 12LDA28-C power unit undertaken at Baron Street Works. The cylinder heads, pistons and liners were all overhauled alongside general maintenance.
D1501 returned to service at the Spring Diesel Gala, 18th and 19th of February 2017 and is performing well. A repaint is due to follow later in the year.
