I’ve been working on the trains out of Derby and the past few days I’ve gone past RTC. 153311 is just outside, still in the East Midlands Trains base livery but with Network Rail logos on the side. Does anyone know what it’ll be used for and if it’s the only one?

There are three with Network Rail, 153311, 153376 and 153385, but I'm not sure what they're being used for I'm afraid.

Here, or there
They’re due to be fitted with some new, experimental track recording kit. Presumably at least one will be out beforehand for traction training for the Colas IM drivers.

Interesting choice of colour for the logo given the background that it’s on
