Preservation Information
Little is known about 50982, but it is presumed that the vehicle was bought for preservation in the early 1990's (in common with most Class 108 vehicles) and moved to the Swansea Vale Railway with DMCL 52061.

It is thought the set never ran at Swansea and was stored along with several other sets on site where its condition deteriorated.

It was reported that the vehicle had been dismantled for spares in December 1999. 50982 had little historical significance and many Class 108 DMBS vehicles still survive, the class being one of the most numerous in preservation.
