Locomotive Overview

The LMS 2P class locomotive, designed by Sir Henry Fowler for light passenger work, had its origins in the Midland Railway’s 4-4-0 483 Class, designed by Samuel Johnson and modified by Richard Deeley. Introduced in 1928, post-Grouping, the 2P’s dimensions were modified from the 483 class and the boiler mountings reduced. Between 1928 and 1932, 138 2P locomotives were produced at either Crewe, or Derby Locomotive Works. The locomotive layout was a basic and well proven two inside frame cylinder design, characteristic of the Midland Railway’s design philosophy and gave a performance increase over that of the 483.

The locomotives gave a steady performance in traffic, without ever excelling, but their sturdy and simple construction, coupled to their light secondary duties, meant low maintenance costs; the lowest average repair cost in pence per mile of any LMS passenger type.In addition to being employed by the LMS, three of the locomotives were allocated from new to the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway (S&DJR). 2P’s were often double-headed where loads dictated, primarily as the LMS had a shortage of larger heavy duty or express locomotives for such services.

Typically delivered painted in a red lined, LMS black livery, other colour schemes did prevail. The S&DJR locomotives were painted Prussian Blue and in later BR days the locomotives were appropriately lined out for mixed traffic working in accordance with British Railways policy.Their use on the steeply graded S&DJR between Bournemouth West and Bath Green Park was a particularly interesting development, given that their large 6ft 6½in diameter driving wheels were not considered ideal for lines of this type. Nevertheless, they put in a lot of useful work over this challenging route, frequently being found paired with Bulleid Pacifics or Standard classes, hauling heavy express passenger services such as the Pines Express.

The first two members of the class, 591 and 639 were withdrawn in 1934 following an accident at Port Eglinton Junction near Cumberland Street Station, Glasgow on September 6th, but the remaining 136 lasted well into British Railways days, the last locomotives in the class being withdrawn between 1954 and 1962, though regrettably, none were preserved. Locomotive 40626 entered service during December 1929 as LMS 626, having been built at Derby under order number Ord074 to Lot 67. The locomotive’s early allocation is unclear, but post-war it was allocated to Ardrossan Shed in Ayrshire before being allocated to Hurlford Shed on June 6, 1959, where it ended its days. Withdrawn from service on Ocober 31, 1961, the locomotive was removed to Inverrurie Works where it was disposed of a month later.

Entered Service: 1935

Purpose: Mixed Traffic

Locomotive History

The London, Midland and Scottish Railway’s mixed traffic, medium powered Class 5, 4-6-0 locomotives were designed by Sir William Stanier. These highly versatile locomotives were universally known as ‘Black Fives’. Stanier, who had previously been the Works Manager at the GWR Works at Swindon realised that there was a need for larger locomotives and using his experience gained at Swindon took inspiration from the GWR Hall Class locomotives. Both the Black 5 and Hall locomotives shared similar cylinder arrangements, internal boiler design and had 72 inch diameter driving wheels. Consequently, the ‘Black Fives’ with their 6 feet driving wheels could attain speeds of around 90mph, making them ideal for passenger traffic.

Initially twenty were ordered from the Crewe Works and a further eighty from the Vulcan Foundry, with the numbering starting from 5000. The first locomotive to be completed was actually engine No. 5020 in 1934 and was built at the Vulcan Foundry, while locomotive No. 5000, the first Crewe built example did not emerge until 1935. The original examples were built domeless with straight throatplace boilers and a low degree superheat. Besides these original orders the LMSR was responsible for the largest single locomotive order ever given by a British railway company to an outside contractor when the company ordered a further 227 ‘Black Fives’ from Armstrong Whitworth & Co in 1936.

Wartime restrictions halted the construction of the Class with No. 5471, built at Crewe being the last produced for five years. In April 1943 production was recommenced with the workshops at Derby, Crewe, and Horwich producing batches every year until 1951. These post war examples were built with George Ivatt’s forward top feed type boilers. There were a number of additional detail variations in the locomotives during and after manufacture with modifications introduced in 1948 by George Ivatt, which included changes to bearings and the introduction of Caprotti valve gear.

On 4th August 1968, ‘Black Five’ No. 45212 was honoured by heading up the last steam hauled timetabled passenger train on British Railways. The following week, on Sunday 11 August the final three ‘Black Fives’ worked the ’15 Guinea Special’ from Liverpool Lime Street to Carlisle, a 315 mile and an almost eleven hour journey.

A total of 842 Class 5 locomotives were built between 1934 and 1952 of which only 5 were named, all after Scottish regiments. Since that time several of the 18 preserved examples of the Class have been named.

Hornby OO BR 4-6-2 City of Birmingham w/ DCC & Sound The demands of maintaining the streamlined form of the Princess Coronation Class exceeded the cost savings to the LMS in coal and in October 1945 the decision was taken to remove the streamlining. This process (defrocking as the fitters called it) began with 6235 City of Birmingham in April 1946 and because the smokeboxes were angled down between the chimney and door to accommodate the sweep of the streamlined casing, they retained this look once the casing was removed. Eventually the raked smokeboxes were replaced with conventional smokeboxes, so that by late 1958 the majority of the fleet showed a similar appearance, although all the defrocked locomotives had the split platform �utility� front end. Withdrawal of the class commenced in December 1962 and by October 1964 all thirty eight had been withdrawn. Fortunately, three locomotives were saved for preservation; 6229 Duchess of Hamilton, 6233 Duchess of Sutherland and 6235 City of Birmingham.46235 City of Birmingham was built with streamlining at Crewe and entered traffic there on July 1, 1939, finally being withdrawn from service in 1964. 46235 was prepared by British Railways for preservation and following storage at Nuneaton MPD, moved to the Birmingham Museum of Science and Industry, which was built around the locomotive. After closure of that museum, City of Birmingham was moved to Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum in 1997. Minimum radius curve 2nd radius + / 438mm+

Locomotive History

Conceived in 1937 when Oliver Bulleid became Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Southern Railway, the Merchant Navy Class represented Bulleid’s vision for a quick accelerating, mixed traffic 4-6-2 locomotive, equally capable of hauling passenger services (such as the Golden Arrow and Atlantic Coast Expresses), or freight workings, to a speed of around 75mph.

Bulleid’s ‘air-smoothed’ design was easy to clean mechanically and hid the boiler’s external pipes and internal workings. Reaction to the new design varied, footplate staff appreciating the locomotive’s characteristics and steaming abilities, whilst the maintenance staff cursed them, multiple panels having to be removed to gain access to even the most minor of mechanical items, especially during the early life of the locomotives, as the design evolved.

Locomotive 35023, Holland-Afrika Line, entered service on November 6, 1948 at Exmouth Junction and was named at Southampton Docks on January 24, 1949 by M.A Pelt, the Managing Director of the company at the time. 35023 stayed allocated to Exmouth Junction until it was sent for its rebuild on Janyary 7, 1957.

Eventually the raked smokeboxes were replaced with conventional smokeboxes, so that by late 1958 the majority of the fleet showed a similar appearance, although all the defrocked locomotives had the split platform �utility� front end. Withdrawal of the class commenced in December 1962 and by October 1964 all thirty eight had been withdrawn. Fortunately, three locomotives were saved for preservation; 6229 Duchess of Hamilton, 6233 Duchess of Sutherland and 6235 City of Birmingham.46235 City of Birmingham was built with streamlining at Crewe and entered traffic there on July 1, 1939, finally being withdrawn from service in 1964. 46235 was prepared by British Railways for preservation and following storage at Nuneaton MPD, moved to the Birmingham Museum of Science and Industry, which was built around the locomotive. After closure of that museum, City of Birmingham was moved to Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum in 1997. Minimum radius curve 2nd radius + / 438mm+

Locomotive History

Conceived in 1937 when Oliver Bulleid became Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Southern Railway, the Merchant Navy Class represented Bulleid’s vision for a quick accelerating, mixed traffic 4-6-2 locomotive, equally capable of hauling passenger services (such as the Golden Arrow and Atlantic Coast Expresses), or freight workings, to a speed of around 75mph.

Bulleid’s ‘air-smoothed’ design was easy to clean mechanically and hid the boiler’s external pipes and internal workings. Reaction to the new design varied, footplate staff appreciating the locomotive’s characteristics and steaming abilities, whilst the maintenance staff cursed them, multiple panels having to be removed to gain access to even the most minor of mechanical items, especially during the early life of the locomotives, as the design evolved.

Locomotive 35023, Holland-Afrika Line, entered service on November 6, 1948 at Exmouth Junction and was named at Southampton Docks on January 24, 1949 by M.A Pelt, the Managing Director of the company at the time. 35023 stayed allocated to Exmouth Junction until it was sent for its rebuild on Janyary 7, 1957.
