Practical Scale - Drawings and Castings
Bulleid Q1 in 3 ½” Gauge
Designed by Nick Feast, this is a simplified model of the well-known Southern Railway locomotive introduced in 1942. Drawings are in metric.
A prototype model has been constructed and extensively tested over the past two years on the Bournemouth SME track.
Relatively few castings are required and laser cut profiles simplify production of the characteristic boiler outline. The special Bulleid wheels are available as iron castings.
The model is easy to build with basic workshop facilities and due to its size is easily handled.
