Preservation Information
52060 was latterly a departmental vehicle (977813) and 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 Great Central Railway (North).

Never used, the vehicle was slowly being stripped as a source of spare parts and spent most of its time under tarpaulins before being the victim of an arson attack in 2004.

The vehicle was destroyed and the remains were disposed of in 2005. 52060 had little historical significance and many Class 108 DMCL vehicles still survive, the class being one of the most numerous in preservation.
