    Can anyone please confirm the current location for Clayton Bo-Bo D8568

    The Diesel Traction Group website says
    "D8568 currently resides at Chinnor on the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway. 18th November 2017 D8568 has now returned to Chinnor after succesfully staring at the South Devon Railway diesel gala."
    No apparent mention more recent than Nov 2017.

    While the Chinnor website says
    "D8568 Status Not at C&PRR at the present time"
    and
    "The locomotive has been regularly used for passenger services at Chinnor but was sent to the Severn Valley Railway for maintenance in 2019. We hope DTG will return the loco to Chinnor in the future (date to be announced)."

    The SVR website says
    "Notes: Usually based at Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway, but often on SVR."

    So, all rather confusing. Is it still at SVR?

    No I do not currently volunteer
    Yes, at SVR, booked to be in service next month paired with D9551. I believe it's been there for repairs and a repaint.
