Re: Hornby Blue Grey Mk2d TSO (R4216A/R4216B)

BR never produced a Mk2f brake variant.
Only Mk2, 2a, 2c & 2d.
So any photos of Mk2f rolling stock would have had a Mk2d or a BG attached.

Now, one final question, can anyone identify the BG coach stabled at Leicester North? Lookng at the photo, it would appear that it wasn...

D5054 Bury Ski Jump 28-03-2005, (E.L.R.)
Haven't a clue what the gradient is, but quite steep to produce steam from D5054

And the next photo will have a Class 09 in Mainline Blue livery.
