    This photo reminds me - there's a recent photo of loco 01544 on Trainlogger taken last month at Worksop. It appears to have a yellow translator / match wagon with it. I wonder if this has been relocated from elsewhere. I'm not sure what units are being stored there?

    The match wagon at Worksop is 041281. There's also a yellow Conflat L there too, but I haven't been able to work out which one it is. Both were at Worksop at least as far back as December last year, which would suggest the September sighting for 041281 is erroneous.

    In fact, after just looking at the photo, the one with 01544 in that photo is the unknown Conflat L.

    Thanks Dan. Could it be a repainted 041998 perhaps? Maybe this got a coat of yellow at same time as 041281...?

    Comments under yellow 041281 pic suggest that was still at Derby earlier this year! Confused!

    I'm sure it's 041281 at Worksop, identified by those trademark holes in the body! Most recent photo I can find that shows 041281 still on site is 10th August. I wonder if the second wagon could be the non-reported 041999? There's not a lot of clues, apart from it is yellow, and has a red bufferbeam, which must pre-date the yellow as it's quite faded.

    The yellow Conflat at HNRC Worksop has letters 'SSL' roughly written on it. No idea what that means. My photo of it is on the UK Locos website listed under 'Worksop'. It's been in the same place at the Western end of the depot yard on the three occasions i've had a look. I haven't seen another Conflat here although the yard is full of new units so not all stock is visible.
