    The Maunsell Locomotive Society had obtained a second S15-class locomotive from Barry Scrapyard, No.30830, without a tender, and so this former Schools-class tender, converted to a snowplough, ADS70227, was obtained for this locomotive in 1996, and the concrete-filled body removed soon after. When the opportunity arose for the Maunsell Loco Society to purchase Schools Class loco ‘Stowe’ it was felt that this would give the society a much better balanced collection, and to help raise funds for the purchase, 30830 was sold, together with spares obtained and the tender chassis, and moved to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway on 28 or 29 September 2000.
