I hope I can contribute a little bit with the following information about Italy, where I think the current information doesn't do it justice. The following engines have been steam in 2021/2022. (2022 unless indicated otherwise)

625.017 ran on 2nd October on the reopening of the Asti-Chivasso line and in spring on the Porrettana line

625.116 was supposed to run Lunio-Erstfeld over the Gotthard pass together with 50 3673 of the Associazione Verbano Express (postponed to spring 2023, probably rather due to a unexpected and sudden policy change for special trains on the Swiss Railway Network than to failure of the engines)

640.003 ran on 9th October Milano-Lecco and 25th September Milano-Laveno

640.143 ran on 24th October 2021 to Besana in Brianza

685.089 ran on 24th April to Besana in Brianza

740 409 ran on 15th May Milano-Laveno and on 30th May Milano-Luino

740.423 ran on 9th October in Tuscany

880.001 belongs to SocietÓ Veneta Ferrovie and was in steam during their open days on 8th/9th October

940.041 ran to Luino on 30th May

FCL 353 was very much alive on 18th April (Easter Monday)
