About the Black 5s
For those that don’t know, the LMS Black 5s were built by the London Midland and Scottish Railways between 1934 and 1951. They were designed by William Stanier. Members of the class survived to the last day of steam in 1968 (some hauling the last railtour under BR), and 18 members of the class survive. They were known as a ‘go anywhere, do anything’ locomotive and have been a favourite among drivers and enthusiasts.
