Prototype information

O.V.S. Bulleid is best remembered for his Pacific express locomotives, but the Q1 goods locomotive, designed and built at the height of the Second World War, was perhaps his greatest technical achievement.

Built for heavy wartime traffic, the Q1 was the most powerful 0-6-0 locomotive ever built in Europe, and its simple "Austerity" design with exposed wheels made it very maintenance friendly. It also had a surprising turn of speed, and was used for heavy passenger trains as well as freight.
