They were numbered 360-369, 1015 and 1001.
As built, they had slightly smaller boilers than the similar and much more numerous 388 Class which went into production later the same year. Their coupled wheelbase was also ¨two inches (51 mm) shorter than that of the 388's in the class.
To start with they worked between Birmingham and Chester, though later they were seen in South Wales, at Didcot and in the Birmingham-Stourbridge area. They were withdrawn between 1918 and 1933, the last (No.363) having accumulated in its 70 years an impressive 1,384,645 miles (2,228,370 km).
