The fifteen year three month career of D5098/24098 saw allocations to North Eastern Region and Scottish Region depots.
Built BR Darlington Works (batch D5094 - D5113).
The frames for D5098 were laid down at Darlington Works during December 1959, D5098 was new to Gateshead (52A) on May 26th 1960. Further transfers were:
March 1963 to York (50A).
Renumbered February 1974.
After withdrawal 24098 was stored at Cadder Yard from August 1975 until October 1975 when it was moved to Glasgow Works. It remained there until February 18th 1976, when it was forwarded to Doncaster Works and was broken up by May 1976.
Movement: 24008/95/98 Glasgow Works – Doncaster February 18th 1976.

On August 29th 5098 & 5099 (both in blue livery) worked a twelve coach mystery excursion from the Whitehaven area to Cleethorpes, running via Carnforth, Skipton, Leeds avoiding line and the Doncaster avoiding line. It is presumed the Class 24s worked throughout.
