SOUTHERN WORKHORSES No.2 Q1 0-6-0s 33001 TO 33040 ISBN 9781911262251

by: Leslie Tibble and Richard Derry

Faced with the need for more 'go anywhere' freight locomotives of enhanced power, Bulleid, as might be expected, eschewed the obvious solution of a conventional 0-6-0, something so familiar on every other railway in the country and indeed recently built under Maunsell on Bulleid's very own Southern Railway - the Q 0-6-0s (for which, see SOUTHERN WORKHORSES 1 Q 0-6-0s 30530-30549). Bulleid considered these traditional 0-6-0s impossibly dainty (if not downright obsolescent) for the hard and varied work on offer and his vastly powerful Q1 owed nothing to earlier designs, in power or of course, famously, in looks.
The Q1s could work almost any train, from a ten coach Sunday excursion to branch freights and coal trains on the main line. Paring down the weight to fit a wide axle loading led to problems however with braking and weld defects. Their lives were interesting to say the least.
