Delivered direct to NCB Coal Products Division, Caerphilly Tar Works, 29th November 1968. By March 1969 it had moved to Glyn Neath Disposal Point operated by Sir Lindsay Parkinson & Company to whom it was sold by January 1970.
D2182 was last seen at Glyn Neath Disposal Point in May 1972 and what became of it in the subsequent couple of years is the subject of much conjecture. It is reported at Caerphilly Tar Works on 4th Novemer 1972 but as carrying a 1961 builders plate, suggesting this sighting may actually have been of either D2178 or D2193 on hire from A. R. Adams & Son. D2182 as far as is known carried a 1962 builders plate. Sightings of any Class 03’s at Caerphilly would thus be very much appreciated.
By September 1973 D2182 had arrived at Gatewen Disposal Point, New Broughton, having been painted in a light – mid green livery with predominently white handrails. It is suggested that this repaint and an overhaul took place at A. R. Adams & Son, Pillgwenlly in 1973. Thus, any sightings of D2182 between May 1982 and the end of 1973 would be of particular interest.
