HEA Hoppers - Post BR: Long Lived Loadhaul

HEA Hoppers - Post BR: Given the scarcity of available photographs this could be a bit of a what if! One of the Loadhaul liveried HEA Hoppers for Train Simulator 2014 is seen after a while in traffic. The overhead warning stickers have been replaced with modern yellow and black ones and the end ladders removed.
Continuing our exploration of the HEA Hoppers after British Rail we come to one of the unusual examples, a dirty Loadhaul liveried hopper that has survived long enough for the paint to fade and a bit of grime to build up. This long life has allowed it time to gain modern overhead warning stickers and have the end ladders removed.

Given the lack of information about the HEA hoppers and especially those that made it into Loadhaul colours this could be a bit of a might have been variation but at least it adds a little more variety!
