No. That beeb link is for something completely different. The ex-Taunton HOBC set. (Looks like it is on the 'bacon curve' in Ipswich).

What Bill saw sounds like a bit of the GWML Electrification Train.

76910 is ex Tiphook KFA 93258. Should also carry the id 99.70.9131.002-6. Although it was reported initially as being mis-labelled as 006-2.

Isn't 76910 131.010?

As an aside, I've never seen a definite list relating old KFA numbers to new numbers.

As far as I know, this is the list I have of the HOPS KFA wagons -

DR76908 - 99 70 9131 008-3 - KFA KF061A - ex NLU93242

DR76909 - 99 70 9131 009-1 - KFA KF062A - ex NLU93280

DR76912 - 99 70 9131 012-5 - KFA KF063A - ex NLU93260

DR76916 - 99 70 9131 016-6 - KFA KF064A - ex NLU93243

DR76917 - 99 70 9131 017-4 - KFA KF065A - ex NLU93256

DR76919 - 99 70 9131 019-0 - KFA KF055C - ex NLU93263

DR76910 (99 70 9131 010-9 - YXA) is one of the Windhoff MPV (Type 1 - SOPB) vehicles.
