Mausell Q class 0-6-0 30541 leaving Horsted Keynes on Saturday the 15th of October 2022
This locomotive was with 73156 on a train to The Bluebells East Grinstead station.
30541 is a Q class 0-6-0 steam tender locomotive that was designed by Richard Maunsell for the Southern Railway. 20 of these locomotives were built in the late 1930s by Oliver Bulleid.
30541 is the only locomotive saved of this class. This locomotive was one of the locomotives that ended up at the Barry scrapyard of Woodham Brothers. While 1000s of coal wagons were cut up in the yard the steam locomotives were left to rot. This gave groups of train buffs and railways time to save up the cash to buy what were often a lot of rust.
30541 was saved by the Bluebell Railway, returning back into steam in 2015.
