Southern class Q1. Very basic loco as the conditions at the time it was built, 1942, demanded. Not the prettiest of things.

Designed by Oliver Bulleid, these were the most powerful 0-6-0 locomotives ever to run in Britain. Note the wide chimney which enclosed a 5-jet Lemaitre blast pipe, and the 'Boxpok' cast steel wheels with holes and recesses on their discs.
This locomotive, the first of 40, was built at Brighton in March 1942, and withdrawn in May 1964. Some of the class were also built at Ashford, and all were completed in 1942.
