Indeed there are 2 screws.  They are about 2/3rds back if you look closely at the picture.  They are quite difficult to spot when looking at the underside of the tender.  Make sure you look under a good light, and it greatly helps to have a magnetized screwdriver, especially when putting them back in. 

I'm assuming you have one of the later DCC-ready super-detail models, rather than the much earlier version with tender drive? If not, see here for the R380 version.  It's possible the tender body just unclips and there are no screws.

From the look of the service sheet, it appears the tender top is held on by clips alongside the base, not a very good drawing. I don't know if you are meant to try and lever the top off, I would be very careful about sticking anything like a screwdriver or similar into the joint, take your time, it is meant to come off.

Cheer's, Pete.

Might this sheet be closer

Looks like the coupling screw might secure the body in place.

That is the sheet I was looking at Paul, it isn't very clear as to how the top is retained. The screw S1070 is described as coupling fitting screw. It may go through to the top and the other end held by a lug or two. 

Pete.
