706531976/77G. Cohen, Cransley, Kettering, Northamptonshire. Chassis scrapped. Body moved to Great Central Railway for preservation, scrapped c2007. It has been quoted that the body that was at the Great Central Railway was that of 70652 rather than this. This is possible. The clue lies with the initially disposal of 70652 and 70688. Can anyone give further information regarding this?
