Topic: LSWR H15 class

Related Topics

  Urie H15 class 4-6-0   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Robert Urie's first design for the LSWR was the result of a crying need for a locomotive with power, freight haulage capacity and reliability.
The result of his deliberations was the 2-cylinder simple H15 with outside Walschaerts valve gear and easy accessiblity for maintenance, which latter was a major and welcome departure from his predecessor's 4-6-0 designs.
There was one externally obvious design difference within the class with some having a lower running plate which was raised in order to clear the cylinder casing, whereas the remainder had a straight running plate above the driving wheels which made them difficult to distinguish from the later Maunsell S15 when viewed from a distance.

 LSWR Class H15 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The LSWR/SR H15 class were a miscellaneous group of 2-cylinder 4-6-0s with 6'0" (1.82 m) driving wheels.
This nickname does not seem to have been applied to the rest of the class, although crews from Guildford depot referred to the others as the 'City Breed'.

The list does not include classes of locomotives that were completely withdrawn from service before 1960, "foreign" locomotives that ran on the Southern region during the 1960s, nor locomotive classes introduced after nationalization.
The number in class column lists both the number originally built (or rebuilt) followed by the number still in service at the start of 1960.
Where a class is a rebuild of a previous class the CME who built the class on which the rebuild was based is shown first (in italics).

Ordered by the LNER in November 1929 the two Y10 class locomotives were intended for use on the Wisbech and Upwell Tramway where the former GER tram locomotives of LNER classes Y6 and J70 were the normal motive power.
This feature considers the affinity of the HR River class to the Urie H15 class of the LSWR, especially the length of the piston stroke (28 inches) and the external Walschaers valve gear.
The class had a major propensity for derailing: the most notorious was the fatal accident to the Lincoln to Tamworth mail train on 6 June 1928.

 LSWR Class N15 - Definition, explanation
The Class N15 were 2-cylinder 4-6-0 passenger engines with 6 foot 7 inch (2007 mm) driving wheels.
They were usually called the ‘King Arthur’ class (or simply ‘Arthurs’) as they all carried names from the Round Table legends.
The first two batches were designed by Robert W. Urie, and built in two batches each of 10 engines by the London and South Western Railway's Eastleigh Works in 1918—19 and 1922—23.

I regret to inform members of the death of John Bentley earlier in 2001, who was a long term member of the Circle.
He was one of a small group of model railway enthusiasts in the Taunton area in the 1970s who introduced me to the merits of modelling the LSWR.
Also, for purist LSWR fans there is likely to be very little of contemporary interest as most cine footage dates from post 1960, long after the disappearance of the majority of South Western stock, even if the lineside still held interest.

 Backtrack Volume 15
Some classes were very short-lived, notably some of the 9F 2-10-0s and the diesel hydraulics and author questions the wisdom of the decisions which led to such uneconmic lives.
See letter from Keith Horne (page 542) who objects to civil engineers being alleged to be off their trolleys, as presumably implied by Williams, and to the changes made in calculating bridge stresses in 1921, and that the railways at that were "beginning to creak" as "at present".

Difficulty was experienced due to the animosity of the LSWR with the LBSCR and progress had to await gaining the assistance of the latter.
The H15 was an early [British] example of the use of outside Walschaerts valve gear and a high running plate, exposing the driving wheels, in contrast to contemporary 4-6-0 designs which persisted with inside valve gear and splashers.
Claims that class demise under Stanier was due to breakage of drive axle - the left hand inside cylinder contributed little power and led to uneven rotational forces and fracture (see page347).

 Sir William Arthur Stanier, FRS
Chacksfield suggests that Stanier was responsible for Churchward's switch to outside steam pipes, introduced on the 47xx class.
His new designs notably the Jubilee class were not problem-free as Swindon ideas did not combine well with the LMS three-cylinder layout as developed for the Royal Scot class, and Stanier's Pacifics retained the Great Western's four-cylinder layout.
Chacksfield suggests that the class 5 may have owed something to the LSWR H15 as the design for the class 5 partially involved the Vulcan Foundry where the Chief Draughsman, Finlayson, was the brother of Findlayson of the LSWR/SR.

British Rail completed construction of the 'West Country' and 'Merchant Navy' locomotive designs, but did not build any further orders.
It abandoned the 'Leader' class experiments, and Bulleid left the UK to carry forward his unusual locomotive designs in Ireland.
Withdrawal of ex-SR locomotives happened mainly towards the end of steam on the Southern Region (in 1967), the pre-Grouping designs having gone before then as electrification continued to spread across the region.
