33108 was sat in the yard at Highley today. Has it been here ever since the Spring Diesel Festival, or did it go and come back? Any news on how long it's here for?

Meet the Locos described BN1 as “C(7)/C(7)+80972/C(7)”, so the loco swap was presumably used to attach the obbo after the first leg as described.
