Status should be "Display" for the time being. C571 blew out its left piston while pulling the "SL-Yamaguchi" excursion on October 10, 2020. Towed back to Kyoto a week later, not much progress has been made on repairing the locomotive after an initial inspection. As of the time of writing, it can be seen on display at the Umekoji Depot roundhouse.
