Got back to Canada a few days ago; did manage to see the Q1 in York, and did get to the Harrogate show for a few hours on the Saturday. (Saw 4 of the A4s during my trip, and a 5th, have been through it here when it was in Canada - none nearly as interesting as the Q1, IMHO) wink

Did not see any Q1s on the stands at Harrogate. Looked at the Polly stand, but did not talk to anyone - they were busy enough with paying customers.

Did I miss one? The exhibition was very busy when I went, so possibly I did miss something on one of the club stands.

Working through the CNCing aspects of my model engineering - have re-drawn the wheels in 2D CAD; also some parts that will be water jet cut.

When current workshop projects come to completion, the Q1 may pop up onto the top of the list - have boiler materiel to make 2 boilers, so possibly 2 Q1s will be made in my workshop? (It'll be documented on, along with other aspects of my CNC education)

All the Q1 models I'm currently aware of (I took the first names from another website, it didn't often list full names):

C6 - Nick Feast (and he has a couple more I don't know the numbers of)

C17 - Made by a gentleman named Harry

C20 - Peter

C41 (Fictional number) - Len

As a point of interest the Hornby model is of C1 and C9, and C10 was on Thomas the Tank Engine under the name Neville...


EDIT - Zombie thread resurrection! Sorry, I thought the date said 2018, not 13...

OK, here is an update on a very old thread! 2 Q1 tender engines completed and a tank engine that never existing now running as well. It's an 0-6-4, successor to the SECR j class and feasible alternative to the Leader. See photo. More info to follow, perhaps something in the magazine if the editor agrees.dscf5495.jpg

I photographed this Q1 at The Bedford Model Engineering Society track earlier this year, sadly no owner details.
