In 1882, William Adams, Locomotive Superintendent of the London & South Western Railway (LSWR), designed and introduced the new Class 415 4-4-2T engine, initially for work on London suburban routes. A total of 71 locomotives were built between 1882 and 1885. In service they were quite quickly superseded by the M7 and displaced to rural branch lines. By grouping, only 30 of the type entered Southern Rail service and by nationalisation in 1948, only 3 survived into British Railways for whom they performed most notably on the Lyme Regis branch line until withdrawn in 1961.
