LMS BLACK 5 4-6-0
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.....

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.

Limited Production Run.....

We have presently reserved capacity for the production of 25 models only. With the Black 5 being such an iconic and popular locomotive we are confident the edition will sell out quickly. It may be possible for us to extend the production run a little, but this cannot be guaranteed and depends on our supplier's capacity.

Early orderers will benefit from the opportunity of choosing the livery and locomotive number of their choice. We will not accept orders for more than 5 models with identical livery and number so you have every chance of owning a truly "one-of-a-kind" model.

Delivery and Payment....

The model is the subject of a single batch production for delivery by March 2021. Once the batch is sold there is unlikely to be any further production until 2024 at the earliest. The model represents excellent value at just £8,995.00 + p&p.
