06/05/90 - 53454 + 53528 appeared at the Bescot Open Day, still carrying set number N669. It was announced that they had been donated to the Severn Valley Railway where they would move after a repaint into green at Tyseley.

01/07/90 - 53454 + 53528 appeared at the Gloucester 150 Rail Day, now carrying set number T104. They arrived under their own power from Tyseley the previous day, and would depart at 17:30 when the open day closed.

circa Oct-90 - 53454 + 53528 were based at the Derby EDU and being used on the Wirksworth branch for electrical resistance tests. After completion they were destined to return to Tyseley for repaint into green for the Severn Valley.

They were a replacement for 53454 + 53528 which were originally destined for the line but were found to contain asbestos between the underframe and floor.
