    There were a few reports of this at Long Marston in June/July 2022, but then nothing.

    A photo has appeared on flickr of it in August 2022, on the M42 at J5.

    Does anyone know where it disappeared to please?


    edit - one sighting of it on TrainLogger at Derby RTC in August, but nothing since. Could be inside? Or a rogue sighting.

    There's more video survey 153s under conversion so very possibly, 153379 and 153384 were last heard of being worked on at Millenium Site Services, which is an industrial unit not far from the RTC.
