    I believe Steam Railway magazine did a review a few months ago which had that information.

    Just checked it through and it is a bit behind the times - notably with the "Locomotives still in scrapyard condition". Top of the list is Large Prairie 4110, whose restoration, as a frequently updated thread on this forum recently informed us, is going great guns at the ESR and may well be the next ex-Barry loco to steam. Other engines in the "still in scrapyard condition" list which have had some work done to them include 5668 and 80150, although both have a long way to go. I think that also a few things have been done to 35010, but not much. Conversely, 42859 hardly counts as "still in scrapyard condition" as there isn't much of it left. 4121 is down as "still being restored", but I don't think it is. I'm open to correction, but I think it is totally unrestored and up for sale. Of course, hot potato 7027 is currently down as "still being restored", but whether it will find itself moved to the "Locomotives used to donate parts to new build projects or act as spares" list is the million-dollar question.

    Potentially reasonably out of date, for example I wouldn't describe 80150 as scrapyard condition anymore with various new parts being fabricated (cab roof, chimney etc) and continued work on the frames, tanks, boiler etc. That work has been ongoing for at least the last 4 years.
    Maybe other people can confirm with other locos?
