Class 08 D3812 was built at Horwich Works and introduced on 13 February 1959 and allocated to Newport Pill locomotive depot. Air brakes were fitted to D3812 in October 1971 and in March 1974 she was renumbered as 08 645. She remained allocated to depots in Wales until the closure of Landore in December 2018 when she was transferred to GWR's Long Rock Maintenance Depot.

At a public open day held to raise money for the Penlee Lifeboat Station and the RNLI, on 13th April 2019, 08 645 was unveiled in the black and with white cross of the Kernow flag and named 'St. Piran', after the patron saint of Kernow/Cornwall.
