5 inch gauge LMS Black 5 - stock code 9809

A 5 inch gauge LMS Black 5 to the Don Young design. Unsteamed in many years, we brought this one back from France as part of a large collection back in 2015.

It's recently come back as part exchange against a Standard Class 4 tank - condition is pretty much the same as when last here, the pictures opposite were taken this week.

Complete with drawings and copies of the original construction articles.
