These coaches will be in or at Derby station every weekend for the next 18 months. I put them here on Friday night. :-D

What is the reason for them being placed there? I just noticed the wheel chocks in place?

Are the grills you see on 975498 , repeated on the other end opposite side as i can't see from any photograph i have seen.

The grills are just on one side only. They are air intakes/ventilation for the 110v Gen Set that was fitted to this (and other similar coaches). If you look directly above the vents about 3ft - 4ft higher, you'll see a little black dot/shaddow. That's the Generator's exhaust pipe.

These two vehicles are being uses as "protection" to protect staff working on station refurbishment work in half of the station at Derby while the other half remains open. In other words they are being used as mobile "stop blocks" allowing trains to approach the platforms which are only blocked for half of their length. They were both still in such use on 05/04/2009 (noted by MK).
