    Ever since arrived at Blake Hall station I have had a suspicion that it was actually DW150344. This has now been confirmed by the owner of the station who says, "Recently, we carried out some refurbishment and exposed a number, which we have left exposed. Whilst being rather faded, it appears to read DW150344. Both the 'D' and the '1' are very unclear".
