Prototype information

In his "Leader" locomotive, Bulleid took the labour-saving and economy improvements found in his Q1 and Pacific designs to the extreme. Encased in a diesel-locomotive-style shell, the Leader was powerful and sure-footed, but unreliable, overcomplicated and unpleasant to operate. Only one of the 36 ordered by the SR was completed, and it was scrapped by BR in 1951, having never been used in revenue service.
