Locomotive Magazine, December 1903

Similar to numbers 13 and 14, numbers 15 to 18 were built by Avonside in 1867 as tender locomotives and later rebuilt to saddle tank locomotives. Compared to the other two machines, they had a leading axle and a shorter wheelbase between the driving axles. Thanks to a smaller coal bunker, they even came to a shorter overall length.
