The third of Robert Urie's 4-6-0 designs for the LSWR and similar in appearance to the N15 class, the S15 proved to be an adaptable class and were capable of putting up a creditable performance when pressed into passenger service during peak holiday periods. They just outlived the N15 class, the first withdrawals coming in 1962, the last being in 1966. Locomotive 30832 was built at Eastleigh in October 1927, entering traffic at Salisbury, where it remained throughout its working life. Originally numbered E832, the locomotive was renumbered 832 under the Southern Railway in October 1932, then as 30832 under British Railways in September 1948. Withdrawal came on January 11, 1964 and 30832 was cut up shortly after at Eastleigh.
