Southern Railway Maunsell S15-class 4-6-0 No. 830

This locomotive is no longer at the Bluebell Railway

This class of locomotives were essentially a goods version of the King Arthur class of express passenger locos (N15). The S15s thus became known as Goods Arthurs. Coming to the Bluebell from Barry scrapyard in 1987, and owned by the Maunsell Locomotive Society, its restoration was not started, since the Maunsell Society had another S15, No. 847, as well as other locos, to keep them busy.

830 at Sheffield Park - 7 April 1990 - Dave Warby

 

When the opportunity arose for the Maunsell Loco Society to purchase Schools Class loco 'Stowe' it was felt that this would give the society a much better balanced collection, and to help raise funds for the purchase this second S15 was sold, together with spares obtained and a tender chassis (a former Schools-class tender, converted to a snowplough, ADS70227), and moved to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
