Class U mogul

At Swanage Railway. I don't know much about Southern railway locomotives but this is a handsome beast. It is a mogul and designed by Richard Maunsall

This is a mixed-traffic class N locomotive, used primarily for light passenger work. I remember seeing this one in service back in the good old days

waaaa!!!!
Bill Phillips: The only Southern stuff I ever saw were the Merchant Navy and BB/WC classes

Chris is wrong, I have to say. It is U class but rebuilt from a K class around 1926. The U class were three batches of 50 locos some of which survived in 1966. This one was built at Eastleigh, I understand. There are handsome beasts especially in their original Southern livery.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed a U class and Chris is wrong, but I didn't like to tell him
Good shot Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks John. Pleased you like it
A powerful looking machine Bill. Wonderful shot
Bill Phillips: It has a purposeful air to it Janet
Alan's already picked up on Chris's faux pax but like you, apart from Sir Lamiel at Loughborough I'm not very well up on Southern locos, but they are good looking engines and I do like you picture of it.
Bill Phillips: Not like Chris to get it wrong. Most of what I saw as a kid was Great Western.

Very impressive it looks too Bill - great treatment
Bill Phillips: I have to say the Maunsall locomotives are very handsome
Terrificly atmospheric shot, Bill
Bill Phillips: I'm pleased you think so Tom
A fine loco, Bill, I like your close up...They are a lot tidier than the engines I have seen here.
Bill Phillips: I think we built the most elegant locomotives of any in the world Frank
Your image "feels" dirty and gritty.... as it should be!
Bill Phillips: Pure muscle....unlike me grin
