PJ February 2017

Did the rolling stock come with it's own 08 shunter? I ask because yesterday I noticed in passing from a train to/from Worcester an 08 shunter, (088XX) in EWS livery parked by the diesel depot, or is it new to SVR stock to assist our own shunters?

Was it 08896, which arrived back in 2009 for spares?

I'm sure it was 08896. I didn't realise the SVR had bought an 08 for spares. Thanks Danny252 for the information.

Found it in my gallery, with the comment "Kidderminster. 23/11/09. Only recently arrived, for spares, apparently." Photos taken from footbridge.

Dave Phillips mentioned on Facebook that there are plans to get one of the stored air braked shunters back in to working order as reserve for the 09.
Is 08896 air braked? Could it be that it will be going in the Diesel Depot for repairs, rather than being broken up for parts?

Progress update on D4126 taken from SVRLive.

Sister 08896 (in EWS livery) has also been moved outside the carriage shed at Kidderminster. Bought for parts retrieval, the engine block is thought to be in reasonable order and is a possible source of parts for 08635.
