SOUTHERN WORKHORSES No.1 Q 0-6-0s

Maunsell arranged for twenty of these dainty 4F 0-6-0s to be built shortly before the Second World War, the first 0-6-0s built by the Southern until the very different Q1s followed a year or two later, under Bulleid. They were the final expression of Maunsell design, owing much in their styling and parts utilised (thus their distinct ‘family appearance’) to his 2-6-0s and 4-4-0s back in the early years of the Southern Railway.

Eminently suited for freight, from meandering pick-ups to lengthy coal trains, they led an unexpectedly mixed traffic existence, finding regular use on heavy weekend excursions to the coast and even enjoyed a spell on commuter trains out of London.

Follows closely the format of the Southern Big Tanks, with full works/shed histories. To be joined shortly by Southern Workhorses 2 Q1 0-6-0s.
