A new and highly detailed model of the LSWR 415 class 'Adams Radial' 4-4-2 tank engines.These
classic British locomotives were built from 1882 for suburban services
along the LSWR lines from London. Displaced by larger locomotives the
radials found new homes on country branchlines, the last three of the
class still working the Lyme Regis branch until 1962.This model is finished as Southern Railway 3250 painted in the late Southern livery with sunshine lettering.
The introduction of electrification, plus the Lord Nelson Class and ultimately, the Bulleid Pacific locomotives, all hastened the N15's departure.'Joyous Gard' was the sixth example of the class to be built, numbered 741 it would leave the shed at Eastleigh in April 1919. During its life the locomotive would receive various modifications such as the class wide installation of smoke deflectors as well as being fitted with a Lemaitre exhaust, becoming one of only five of the class to have the upgrade fitted.
The locomotive would become 30741 under British Railways, before being withdrawn and scrapped in February 1956. Only one member of the class would be preserved, a North British Loco built example, 777 Sir Lamiel, part of the National Collection, under the care of the 5305 Locomotive Association, being based at the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire.
