One of the 12 standard designs introduced by the newly nationalized British Railways, the Class 5 was based on the LMS 'Black 5' and built in Derby and Doncaster during the 1950s for service in all regions. This exploration of its history includes both colour and black-and-white photographs and seeks to identify the numerous variations in detail within the class while reviewing its design, construction, operational history, liveries and preserved examples.
