Some of the post-BR history of 20177 may be seen in photographs on the Preserved Diesels website. 20177 was used by EWS at Toton where it was photographed in mid-2002 in a poor state of repair (link). By October 2002 the locomotive had been acquired by present owners, the Somerset & Dorset Locomotive Company and moved to their site at Yeovil. There the locomotive began the process of being stripped for spares for the Company's other locomotives D8059 and D8188 (link). 20177 moved to Tyseley in 2004 with D8059, from where it moved to Kidderminster in 2010.SVR by road in October 2017 and was photographed at the scrapyard of C.F. Booth Ltd., Rotherham, and has since been confirmed as scrapped.
