    Could someone advise the wheel diameter for the LSWR/Southern bogie tenders, Urie/Maunsell type (as opposed to the 'water cart' type), as used on the N15 Class locos?
    Many thanks.

    @The Saggin' Dragon may find a line drawing of the whole loco more useful than just a measurement. This is attached but it looks as though the diameter is 3ft 7 in. I also have drawings of other locos in the King Arthur family.

    Interesting that they used coil springs for the driving axle and leaf for the coupled.
