I understand this move included RM95s DR76323 and 324 plus power wagon DR92264 and a number of MFS wagons. They have been sold to Swietelsky for use initially in Austria. All have been given RIV numbers, DR92264 being 99709 252002-9 and the MFS wagons being in the 99709 352xxx series. Hence if the consist could be posted on here it would be helpful.

Thats interesting the wagons were the Ballast Distribution System NFS-D's. If I remember correctly the RM 95's were designed to accept new ballast from the BDS system. If a spoil system was used an MFS-A to act as a conversion conveyor.

To expand on what Nick says about renumbering. Actually, all rail vehicles (locomotives, coaching stock, wagons, OTMs) where allocated a twelve (eleven + check) digit EVN number several years ago. There is only a need to display these on vehicles of new types entering service since last January or if that is the GB Operating number or if they operate on the national railways of another EU state. None compliance with the fine details of the regulations is widespread.
The GB Operating number is that used by TOPS, Genius and staff to identify a vehicle. As TOPS cannot apparently cope with numbers longer than ten digits only the last ten digits of the twelve digits are used. This it seems has always been the case with UIC numbered wagons going back to BR days.
The DR xxxxx numbers carried by these vehicles where there GB Operating numbers but obviously they should now display EVN numbers. It is presumed from the postings these had been applied prior to departure from Whitemoor.
A full listing of EVN numbers is held on the National Vehicle Register which as far as I am aware is not publicly available and professional access is restricted. Of course GB Operating numbers should be displayed on vehicles,

Thank you Peter for your additional comments and the explanation which is appreciated. From what I have seen it does appear that the EVN numbers were applied prior to the vehicles leaving Whitemoor.

The following, at least, were in today's consist (a video can be seen here)
92251 (352029-1) (interestingly, this is the 29th wagon in the 92223-92262 range. Would it be premature to assume they're 352001-040 in sequence?)
Presume the two moves cover everything that was recently for sale..
