Another Confusing Numbering

A 760mm gauge 0-6-0T has been displayed at the train station in Zrece, Slovenia since it was withdrawn from service at the Jesenice Steelworks in Zrece. Interestingly, it is numbered as the 23rd locomotive in the 71 class (71-023). There were only 22 locomotives in this class, and the numbering, I suppose, was intended to make it look more appropriate to the locomotive in which it was to be displayed. Nonetheless, it is a pretty cosmetic restoration, as shown below:
