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.

26043 to go to s&d is about £1700 each way, over 80tons however and the cost skyrockets. 

 

Dmus are longer so need a longer so need a linger trailer.
