Southern Railway/British Railways Urie/Maunsell Class S15 4-6-0 No. 30499 being towed through Cardiff General Station on its way to Woodham Brothers scrapyard at Barry in August 1964. Built at Eastleigh Works in May 1920, it was withdrawn from 70B Feltham shed on 5th January 1964.

30499 is preserved by the Urie Locomotive Society and based at the Mid-Hants Railway, Watercress Line - http://www.watercressline.co.uk/. It is undergoing a long-term restoration project to bring her from Barry scrapyard condition to full working order. Much work has been done, on wheels and frames and a new appeal was launched in 2012 to raise the final funds to complete its restoration to run alongside its sister loco No. 506. The aim of the society is to preserve an example of Robert Urie's class S15 4-6-0 locomotives for operation. In fact, the society owns the only two surviving Urie S15's, numbers 30499 and 30506, built for the London & South Western Railway in 1920 at Eastleigh Works to haul heavy goods trains. To compliment our engines, the society also owns a range of ten typical goods vans and wagons to form a short goods train.

30506 hauling 30499 + 30841 + 30847 left 70B Feltham shed for South Wales on 18th August, 1964. Some reports suggest 30506 failed at Staines and returned to 70B to be replaced by 30824 as train engine. What was pulling it by the time it reached Cardiff General is not known.

The loco was a Maunsell development of the Urie design with higher boiler pressure, reduced cylinder diameter, smaller grate, modified cab and other detail alterations.

The LSWR S15 class was a British 2-cylinder 4-6-0 freight steam locomotive designed by Robert W. Urie, based on his H15 class and N15 class locomotives. The class had a complex build history, spanning several years of construction from 1920 to 1936. The first examples were constructed for the London and South Western Railway (LSWR), where they hauled freight trains to the south coast ports and further west to Exeter, as well as occasional passenger work in conjunction with their larger-wheeled N15 class counterparts.

Three schoolboy trainspotters wearing their school uniform of peaked school caps and blazers, two with fawn coloured mackintoshes, note down the locos number. On the right two older spotters wearing jackets and trousers, sit on a trolly and also note down the locos number. Note the proverbial duffle bag!

It is currently stored awaiting overhaul. The locomotive's boiler and tender are currently in use on 825 - http://www.nymr.co.uk

A trainspotter in his school uniform of peaked school cap, shirt, tie, pullover, blazer, short trousers and knee socks, looks intensly at the footplate controls. By 1966, school caps and shorts were no longer worn by the vast majority of boys, only public and grammar schools hanging on to them.
