TIPH 93405 is a KFA wagon. It looks a bit tatty, and the wagon number board is not to the typical standard seen in the Touax wagons maintained at Eastleigh. In 2013 it was reported to be stored at Long Marston, but in 2017 it was in a 6Z50  train formation, rather than the more usual Class 4 for liner trains. Is it about to enter the works, or is it in civil engineer's service?
