Notes Locomotive is at Tyseley while the tender remains on the West Somerset Rly. Examination of this tender has only found stamps on it which suggest the true number started with the numbers 28 or 29. This ties up with the design of the frames which were fitted to tenders in the 28XX and 29XX number series. 2756 is the number of the last known tender allocated to GWR Hall class no.4936.
