What is the Bulleid Q1 Class Loco Add-On
The Bulleid Q1 Class Loco Add-On is a downloadable content (DLC) for Train Simulator, a popular train simulation game developed by Dovetail Games. Train Simulator allows you to drive various trains on realistic routes around the world, as well as create your own routes and scenarios. The game has a large community of modders and fans who create and share custom content, such as locomotives, wagons, routes, scenarios, etc.
The Bulleid Q1 Class Loco Add-On is one of the custom content created by Victory Works, a third-party developer who specializes in steam locomotives. The add-on features the Bulleid Q1 Class, a 0-6-0 steam locomotive that was designed by Oliver Bulleid, the Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Southern Railway. The Q1 Class was built between 1942 and 1949, as a response to the shortage of suitable motive power during World War II. The Q1 Class had a distinctive and unconventional appearance, which earned it some nicknames such as \"ugly duckling\", \"coffee pot\", or \"charlie\". Despite its looks, the Q1 Class was a powerful and efficient locomotive that could operate on most of the Southern network. It was mainly used for goods traffic, but sometimes also for passenger services. The Q1 Class survived until the end of steam in the mid-1960s, and only one of them was preserved: the first one built, number C1. It can now be seen at the National Railway Museum in York.
The Bulleid Q1 Class Loco Add-On includes two liveries: Southern Railway black and British Railways black, with pre- and post-1956 logos. It also includes dynamic numbering and optional fittings for all members of the class. The add-on has extensive detailing and features, such as:
Three driving modes: simple, standard, and advanced
Multiple cab views
Fully modelled and animated Stephenson's Gear
Realistic wheel slip physics and effects
Cylinder cock management
Realistic injector control
Fully controllable steam sander
Working tender controls
Dynamic head disc/lamp settings
The add-on also comes with a selection of World War II era wagons, such as:
SR single conflats with containers
SR double conflats with loads such as Spitfire fuselage, gun barrels, tree trunks, and planks
SR Warwell with Cromwell tank
The add-on is compatible with Quick Drive mode, which allows you to drive the Bulleid Q1 Class on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator. Additionally, the add-on includes six scenarios for the Somerset & Dorset route (also available on Steam), which recreate some historical operations of the Q1 Class.
