Based around a design of R.W. Urie from 1918 for an express passenger class of 4-6-0s, the 'King Arthur' or 'N15' class eventually totalled around 74 locomotives. The original 20 locomotives built to Urie's design were, however, not successful and when Maunsell was faced by the necessity, soon after the Grouping of 1923, to construct further express locomotives he took the opportunity to modify the original design and alongside the new build locomotives, also modified the original 20. Successful after the modifications, the career of the class on both the Central and Eastern sections of the SR was curtailed by the SR's policy of main line electrification, but the type continued to offer sterling services on the ex-LSWR main lines until the arrival of the Bulleid Pacifics. Peter Swift provides a reference to the class with detailed 4mm scale drawings along with a comprehensive selection of colour and mono photographs that illlustrate the considerable variety of liveries carried by the locomotives during their careeers and the detail differences that marked out each individual locomotive at particular dates. The locomotives were built at Eastleigh and by North British in Glasgow. As express passenger locomotives, examples of the class operated widely over the Southern Railway and latterly Southern Region. One example, No 30777, survives in preservation as part of the National Collection.

This book is one in the Pen & Sword Transport History imprint in the ‘Locomotive Portfolio’ series and covers the family of two-cylinder 4-6-0s designed and built by the Chief Mechanical Engineers of the London & South Western and Southern Railways between 1914 and 1936, which survived well into the era of British Railways. The N15 ‘King Arthur’ class of express passenger engines were the mainstay of the Southern Railway’s passenger business between the two world wars, but both Robert Urie and Richard Maunsell built mixed traffic and freight locomotives of a similar ilk forming a ‘King Arthur’ family of locomotives for all purposes that were simple, robust and long lived. This book describes the conception, design and construction of the N15, H15 and S15 classes and the N15X rebuilds of the LB&SCR ‘Baltic Tanks’ and their operation in traffic before and after the Second World War, until the withdrawal of the last Maunsell 4-6-0 in 1965. The book includes extensive personal recollections of the author, who both saw and travelled on hundreds of trains hauled by many of these engines in the 1950s and ‘60s, and gives a brief summary of those that have been preserved on Britain’s heritage railways. The book is copiously illustrated with over 200 black and white and colour illustrations.

Many years ago, the storytellers say, the great King Arthur brought justice to England with the help of his gallant Knights of the Round Table. Of these worthy knights, there was never one so fearless, so chivalrous, so honorable, so…shiny as the dashing Sir Lancelot, who was quite good at defending the helpless and protecting the weak, just as long as he’d had his afternoon nap. Behold the very exciting and very funny adventures of Lancelot the Great, as only acclaimed Arthurian author Gerald Morris can tell them.
