Class Information

Introduced 1890. Hawthorn Leslie design for Southampton Docks Co. Absorbed by LSWR in 1892.

In 1892 the Southampton Dock Company, together with its fleet of locomotives, was absorbed into the LSWR. Sourced from a variety of manufacturers this fleet totalled eight in number, consisting entirely of 0-4-0ST types, (three of which were sold off in 1896) and joined three others that the LSWR had previously bought from the Docks Company for working Southampton Town Quay and Pier. Of these locomotives those not sold or withdrawn by 1901 were transferred to the Running List for statistical reasons.

Two of these locomotives, Nš457 Clausentum and Nš458 Ironside, were built by Hawthorn Leslie in 1890 though they did not receive their numbers until 1901. Originally built with 3' 0" driving wheels, at some stage these were replaced with wheels of 3' 2" diameter. They were both transferred to the Running Department in March 1901 and sent to work the Town Quay and Pier, being replaced in the docks by B4 Class locos Nš89 Trouville and Nš90 Caen. These two locomotives were subsequently renumbered as 0457 and 0458 and denoted as the "0458 Class", with Nš0457 later becoming 734 and remaining in service until September 1945, when it was withdrawn, whilst Nš0458 became Nš3458 and survived into British Railways' ownership where, as Nš30458, it spent its last years shedded at Guildford.
