What are the two current coaches that 999606 currently run with. Would I be correct in saying, two Mk2Ds 72630 & 72631??

Ok Thanks for the info SD0853.
Just another couple of questions to add to the list!! (Im modelling 999606 in OO gauge along with MK2D 72630 and 72631 which I am now aware ran with 999606 for a while.
Does anyone know roughly what period this was? (I have a few photos that show around mid '06 to '07
Apart from the obvious ultrasonic equipment and doors/windows etc, does anyone know if anything else was modified when the MBS 62356 was converted into 999606 (mainly looking for underframe detail, motor and anyting else?
Many thanks for any help

I think Adam G might be wrong about seeing 999606 yesterday. This test train has been through Aynho a couple of times today and it is definitely a plated over mk2 of some kind at that end, possibly 99666?
