Notes This tender was purchased from departmental use by, it is thought, the group who owned SR West Country class no. 34007 and was later resold to the owner of GWR 2884 class 2-8-0 no.3814. The owner has two tenders for 3814. The other tender is a Churchward 3500 gallon tender. Restoration of the Collett 4000 gallon tender is almost complete though it was still awaiting painting in November 2019. It will initially be used with new build GWR Grange class 4-6-0 no. 6880 when this loco is completed.
