LMS Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 loco # 5000

The London Midland and Scottish Railway's Class 5 4-6-0, almost universally known as the Black Five. It was introduced by William Stanier in 1934 and 842 were built between then and 1951. Members of the class survived to the last day of steam on British Railways in 1968, and eighteen are preserved. Numbering started from 5000, with the first twenty being ordered from Crewe Works in April 1934, and a further fifty (5020–5069) ordered from the Vulcan Foundry in 1933.
