According to the section "diesel Locos" in the Our Locomotives section of the website, we also have D3802 (08635) at Kdr, which is not marked up for spares retrieval. Could this be the possible air braked one ?

As it now says in the News section on SVRlive:
Dual braked D3802/08635 (in blue livery) has been moved from store at Kidderminster carriage shed to the diesel shed for assessment to commence at some point soon. The locomotive is thought to be restorable, although the engine block may be beyond economic repair. The rationale is that the SVR has a new stabling contract with the Belmond Northern Belle for its carriage stock. It now makes sense to look at possibly getting 08635 into use.

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.

Both shunters are owned by the SVR.

Following assessment (see February 18th) D3802/08635 will not be restored and will be used for spares.
