D1916 Defford 24 July 2012

D1916 (47812) was entrusted with the 6Z31 13:31 Cardiff Canton to Chaddesden refurbished scrap hoppers move on 24 July 2012. It is seen here passing Defford running over one and a half hours late. This was fortunate, as it meant the lighting was much better, with the sun (just!) on the front. Notice how the refurbishment has involved a repaint, but only along the top and around the area where the wagon data panels are. Exactly how expensive is black paint?
