## About This Content
The ‘ugly duckling’ of Southern steam is now here for Train Simulator, brought
to you by Victory Works.
World War II halted production of steam locomotives in the UK, but a large
increase in goods traffic across the country forced a shortage of suitable
motive power for the Southern Railway. The dated Q Class was seen as an
obvious, but the SR’s Chief Mechanical Engineer, Oliver Bulleid, decided a new
class of 0-6-0 steam locomotives was a much better replacement, using minimal
resources due to wartime austerity and to reduce weight.
Built by SR’s Brighton and Ashford Works, the Q1 Class’ unique design saw it
labelled with some less than favourable nicknames, however its lightweight
construction meant it could operate across the majority of the Southern
network, and it was even used occasionally on passenger services. The Q1 Class
adequately met the Southern Railway’s wartime requirements and many of the
Class continued into the post-war BR era, working over the Southern Region
until the end of steam in the mid-1960s.
All but one of the Class were scrapped; the first locomotive built in the
Class was preserved and ran until 2004 at the Bluebell Railway in West Sussex.
It can now be seen on static display at the National Railway Museum in York,
The Bulleid Q1 Class for Train Simulator is available in Southern and BR
liveries, with pre- and post-1956 BR logos. Extensive detailing of the model
includes three driving modes, dynamic numbering including optional fittings
for all members of the class, multiple cab views, fully modelled and animated
Stephenson’s Gear, realistic wheel slip physic and effects, cylinder cock
management, realistic injector control, fully controllable steam sander,
working tender controls and dynamic head disc/lamp settings.
Also included are a selection of World War II era wagons, including SR single
conflats with containers, SR double conflats with loads including Spitfire
fuselage, gun barrels, tree trunks and planks, Howitzer Railgun and SR Warwell
with Cromwell tank.
The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive
the Bulleid Q1 Class on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator,
such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios
specifically for the Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway route (available
separately and required to play these scenarios).
