Out of interest and curiosity, does anyone know how much it costs to transport an item of rolling stock like this? Roughly?

That's kind of a bit of string question depending on weight, distance etc. 

 

As a rough guide we've transported a wagon as a return load for an otherwise empty trailer from the South Coast to North Yorkshire for £700, whereas a tender loco can cost up to £4000 or so.

Another site is suggesting £3500 to move a 2 car DMU.

So when a preserved line is running a gala with guest locos you can get an idea how much delivering said locos may have cost before even turning a wheel.

Yes...

 

Last year, 2 vehicles of a very similar weight, and length, cost over £2500 (+VAT) each to move from a railway based in the south to a Railway based in the Midlands..
