Manufacturer description
The third of Robert Urie's 4-6-0 designs for the LSWR and similar in appearance to the N15 class, the S15 shared many of its two predecessor's components such as in the boiler, cylinder, valve gear and tender designs. The only major difference in design for the S15 came in the smaller diameter of the driving wheels. This gave better traction, which was essential for the S15's anticipated heavy freight workings to the south coast ports.
