Comments: An ex- bright red BGZ at the Midland Railway Centre? 32998 came to the centre from Tinsley after departmental use. Bought by a locomotive group there, it was later made redundant. Consequent further deterioration made restoration uneconomic. 32998 was gradually broken up, only the chassis surviving serving another purpose. Some of the better body parts were retained however for use on other LMSR vehicles.
