Several of the Class were sold on to industry, 07013 being used by Dow Chemical Company of King's Lynn apparently from 1976 so quite possibly on loan from BR initially as official withdrawal was July 1977. Following a career at Dow, 07013 was purchased by HNRC and moved to Barrow Hill where it was cosmetically restored to BR Blue livery. The loco also spent some time at Peak Rail within the Rowsley South Heritage Shunters Trust site.07013 arrived at Bury on the 14th of May 2013 is currently awaiting restoration and a power unit swap. The loco is stored unservicable near to Bury South Signal Box.
A time-lapse video of 07013 being unloaded at Bury can be seen on YouTube.
