6998 has been out of service for nearly 20 years as a display piece. Please change status to DISPLAY, she has no more boiler ticket time, and is in need of a major overhaul.

Ex Great Western Railway No. 6998 'Burton Agnes Hall' at Didcot, Berkshire in December 1992.
The large "Z98" on the smokebox was a method (large letters and numbers)used by the GWR and then the Western Region of British Railways to identify its passenger trains. There was however no such train as Z98.

I can post a photo of this loco in steam. If you are interested perhaps this one can be removed.
