The 6420xx series of wagons were 2005 new builds from the same Greenbriar production line that was responsible for all the FEAs twinsets in Freightliner use.
(The 6410xx set started split between NR and Freightliner for Infra use, but most have gravitated to revenue traffics with Freightliner).
The ex bin-liner wagons in RHTT use (largely south of the Thames) are the RIV numbered singles in the 99 70 9310 0xx set. These were previously 925xx in the PO number series. Yet to see one myself, as every time I venture in that direction I get an MPV - and never the pair I still need!
