Class S15 Maunsell 4-6-0 freight locomotive design Ex SR 825 (BR 30825)
Built at Eastleigh Locomotive Works in 1927 or 1935?
The Southern Railway Class S15 4-6-0 locomotive was built in 1935 (according to NYMR) as a mixed traffic locomotive and is a development of the famous SR King Arthur Class.
The Southern Railway had no water troughs and so many of the steam locomotives running on the south western section were fitted with large bogie tenders for extra water capacity.

The railway trip involves seeing or travelling behind a 'real' steam locomotive or heritage diesel in action and there is nothing like the sight and sounds of a steam train to invoke feelings of nostalgia in some of us, even more luxury by having a special trip out on a steam dining train!
