3rd November 2015

With thanks to Jon Bowers and the Bluebell Railway, Sussex we are pleased to bring you an opportunity to capture this iconic locomotive in the Autumn of 2015. 

The Q Class, is a type of 0-6-0 steam locomotive designed by Richard Maunsell of the Southern Railway and constructed immediately prior to the Second World War, for use on medium-distance freight trains throughout network. Twenty locomotives were built by Maunsell's successor, Oliver Bullied, in 1938. The design was relatively old-fashioned and the class was soon afterwards eclipsed by Bulleid's own more powerful Q1 Class. Nevertheless the locomotives performed adequately and reliably on the tasks for which they were designed until their withdrawal in 1965. The class was not considered sufficiently important for official preservation and had it not been for Woodham Brothers' scrapyard in Barry, South Wales, no examples would have survived. Only one, number 541 (BR No. 30541), was rescued, and has operated ever since on the Bluebell Railway, Sussex. April 2015 saw the loco return to traffic after an extended overhaul and for the first time in preservation she has been returned to her 1960’s BR livery.


Our day will see 30541 paired with the railway’s Bullied Coaches and will start around 07.30, we will have full use of the line and with no other trains that day we will stay out until around 16.30.

We are sure this will prove a popular day and therefore recommend an early booking. 

Event cost £65.00 per person.
