The Class 08 Society was launched in Spring 1983 to secure a vacuum fitted BRBritish Rail or British Railways Class 08 shunter, to be used on the SVRSevern Valley Railway for ECSEmpty Coaching Stock moves, P.WayPermanent Way work and other shunting purposes.
The Society successfully acquired D3022 in April of that year, bringing it to the SVRSevern Valley Railway a month later.
