The Ubiquitous "Black 5"
With eight hundred and forty-two of the class built the Class
5's were probably the most widely used steam locomotives ever to
run on Britain's railways. They were designed soon after Sir
William Stanier took over as Chief Mechanical Engineer and
incorporated several GWR features.
Designated as mixed traffic locomotives the Black 5's were
equally at home pulling a rake of coaches, or at the head of a
freight train. With 6ft diameter driving wheels and a tractive
effort of 25,445lbs the Black 5 proved itself a highly capable
"go anywhere, do anything" locomotive.
In service the locomotives were always in black livery. In LMS
days a thin straw coloured lining was used. In BR service
red/white/grey lining was standard. Early, or later BR crests
were carried according to period.
The model offers a good level of fine scale detailing and is to
a high engineering standard. This combination of appearance and
performance is rarely matched by our competitors. Certainly, our
value-for-money and after sales service are second-to-none. Each
model comes complete with a silver soldered copper boiler, CE
marked and hydraulically tested to twice working pressure. We
provide a full 12 months warranty with every model so you can
buy with confidence.

but this cannot be guaranteed and depends on our supplier's
