Doing a lot of photography on the South Western Division in 1962 and 1963 meant I saw a number of S15 4-6-0 locos. On goods trains, the milk train and a lot on passenger services. Those latter were mainly the 54 minutes past the hour locals to, (and from), Basingstoke. Virtually all were taken on my Balda camera, so the results are reasonable.
