| Description

The ‘Black Fives’ were mixed traffic class locomotives, a ‘do-anything-go-anywhere’ type, designed by Sir William Stanier. In their early days the locomotives were known as the ‘Black Staniers’ from their black livery but later on they became known as ‘Black Fives’; the number referring to the power classification. ‘Black Fives’ occasionally worked as far south as Bournemouth and even ran over the Mid Hants Railway, 'the 'Watercress Line'. This locomotive class was large enough for the steep gradients but small enough to be economical. Eighteen of the Class have been preserved. In 1974, ‘45379’ was bought for restoration and taken to the Avon Valley Railway, then later to The Great Central Railway. It was bought from there by MHRPS, coming to Alresford on 1 March, 2002.

The restoration of ‘45379’ was completed in time for the Somerset & Dorset Steam Spectacular that ran between 10-12 September appearing alongside the visiting S&DJR Class 7F No. 88, the five year restoration effort visible for all to see. ‘45379’ is currently a welcome guest of The 1:1 Collection, awaiting overhaul for its return to steam.

Black 5 45379 review

An absolute charm, ideal to recreate times in both BR days and in preservation. The Class 5MTs are renown for their fame and glory and they look good with either goods or passenger. I have another one from the 80s number 5112 and there is a noticeable difference in looks and performance, especially since the motor is now in the boiler and the motor is much smoother and quieter. Fitting the sound chip took me about 15 mins or so, so that aspect was fiddly. But aside from that I am very happy with this model!
