Notes The actual identity of this tender has not been established but it arrived at Woodham Bros, Barry with GWR Manor class 4-6-0 no. 7828. The last tender on this loco's record card is no. 1864 but the loco ran for another 4 years when no information was added to the record card and it could have been swapped for another one during this time. It was purchased from Woodhams with 3814, GWR 2884 class 2-8-0. The owner has two tenders for 3814. Work was started on this 3500 gallon tender including getting a new tank made. The frames however are in poor condition and a Collett 4000 gallon tender was later also purchased. The 4000 gallon tender was in better condition and is now almost fully restored and is currently at Northern Steam Engineering, Stockton on Tees with GWR 2884 class 2-8-0 no. 3814. It is likely that the 4000 gallon tender will be hired out for use with 6880 GWR Grange class 4-6-0 before being attached to 3814.
