Meet Stephen, the Q1Meet Stephen, the Q1 by HankAmericanEngine
Alias (if applicable): Stephen, Powerhouse Q1
Number assigned: None
Locomotive type: Steam; Tender
Locomotive specification: Bulleid Q1
Wheel arrangement: 0-6-0
Year built: 1944
Builder: Oliver Bulleid; S.R. Brighton or Ashford Works
Bio: Built as an experimental locomotive while the Second World War neared an end in 1945, Stephen is known for his speed, strength, and stamina. Due to being an experimental locomotive, Stephen is violently hostile, mercilessly rude, and disturbingly distrusting of any engine, and anyone. This often leads to trouble when he is on-loan to other railways; several of these tactics include purposely failing himself, disregarding or disobeying orders, and generally disrespecting all railway staff, including the controller(s). With a tough exterior, and even sturdier interior, Stephen possesses the incredulously tenacious audacity to stick his funnel into things where he should not; this often leads to disastrous consequences for all involved.

Love to scrap engines (Steamie or Diesel, neither matters)
I enjoy fights greatly, so don't be surprised if I try and pick a fight with you. Hehehehehe.
My closest friends are and Iron Bert.
Good friends of mine are and .
I WANT TO SMELT .
Consider yourself lucky, VERY LUCKY, if I even acknowledge you with the term, "friend".
Don't be surprised, or shocked, or scared, or whatever when I get at you. If I'm right, damn right you acknowledge it. If I'm not, then good for you.
Howdy everyone. This is Stephen's deviantART account. Don't sweat it if he tries to instigate a fight; if you see (*malevolent chuckle* Hehehehehe), then he's only bothering you. If it's not there, don't keep stoking the fire.
I'll have a bit of his life history up soon, but it takes time since it's so very painful to actually put into words.
Speaking from experience with the Q1 tender engine who has a Liverpudlian accent (like Zebedee from TUGS) and a rather unpredictable and volatile personality, it's just something you get used to. He's very, hmm, unorthodox in how he expresses himself and, from his life history, it's fairly understandable as to why.
This song describes him perfectly (in addition to "Savin' Me" by Nickelback) :www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVTBQL…:
Enough of me blathering on about him, so just try and get him to warm up to you. After a while, you should be running on dry rails from there on out.
