Class 47 47826 Saltburn at Totnes Devon

On the 28th May 2007 class 47 47826 Saltburn is seen at Totnes en route to Plymouth.
47826 was running in front of the Devonian as insurance in case the train steam locomotive, 71000 Duke of Gloucester, had any problems.
The diesel was not needed!

The loco name is (or was) Springburn. Removed when loco acquired by West Coast Railway Company. Was previously numbered 47637 and 47274. It spent the majority of its life in Scotland based at Haymarket (Edinburgh), Eastfield (Glasgow) and Inverness before moving south to Old Oak Common (London) in 1987.

Now you've got me worried.
I have just searched all 3 numbers on the Preserved Diesels website and none of them appear. Perhaps they are still officially not preserved yet.
The number on the loco is definitely 47826 but the name is not clear enough.
Another site shows 47826 as Springburn in 2006 but does not have any more info. So where did I get Saltburn from? We may never know!!!!
