Notes New tank has been fitted since preservation. During restoration this tender was initially fitted with a plate carrying the number 2560. However an announcement on the owning group's Facebook page in January 2017 said that the correct number was in fact 2771. The tender is the property of the group who own GWR Modified Hall class 4-6-0 no 6984 but has been hired by the Wrightwick Hall Restoration Group for use with GWR Modified Hall no 6989 until their own tender (number 4019) is ready.
