Notes:

1.          From the 1923 grouping through to 1928 the locomotives LB&SCR numbers were retained with a ‘B’ prefix added.

2.          Nos. 105 to 109 were ordered in March 1914 but were delayed by the First World War.

3.          Tank vents removed by LB&SCR.

4.          Whistles relocated from cab roof, cab roof trimmed and steps inset to conform with SR composite loading gauge when Eastleigh commenced maintenance post-grouping.

5.          Nationalisation renumbering commensurate with fitment of Ashford-pattern injectors replaced Weir-type and feed-water heating equipment discarded.
