The London Midland and Scottish Railway Class 5 4-6-0, almost universally known as the Black Five, is a class of steam locomotive. It was introduced by William Stanier in 1934 and 842 were built between then and 1951. In their early days the locomotives were known as the “Black Staniers” from their black livery, in contrast to Stanier’s other class of 4-6-0, the LMS Stanier Jubilee Class, which were painted crimson (known until April 1935 as the “Red Staniers”).
Members of the class survived to the last day of steam on British Railways in 1968, and eighteen are preserved. This class of locomotive was often a favourite amongst drivers and railway fans.
