All spruced up in the snow - Nº30837 on an LCGB rail tour, the "S15 Commemorative Rail Tour", on 9th January 1966. This ran from Waterloo to Bentley behind Nº30837, then down the Borden branch and back behind U Class Nº31639 followed by Bentley - Eastleigh - Eastleigh Works - Eastleigh - Fareham - Havant - Waterloo behind Nº30837 again.
Note the six-wheel tender, which is like a Schools class tender and quite different from the eight wheel ones above.
