Stanier built for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway for use on the crack expresses on the West Coast Main Line between London and Glasgow.

Great British Steam Engines- 1 – The Black 5’s Part 1

The first in a series of videos highlighting some of the most well-known classes of steam locomotive in Great Britain. “The Black 5’s are arguably one of the most powerful and advanced steam locomotives built in Britain. They were known as mixed traffic locomotives, a do-anything and go-anywhere engine”. This video looks at the Black 5’s designed by Sir William Stanier in the 1930’s to overcome a great need in newer, more powerful locomotives. I originally made this video in December 2010, and I have adapted it slightly for YouTube. DISCLAIMER: All copyrighted content used in this video is courtesy of its respective owners.

LITTLEWOOD, British N Gauge Model Railway

This is footage taken of our Modern Image ‘N’ Gauge Model Railway ‘Littlewood’ at a Model Railway Exhibition near Wolverhampton. The layout was exhibited all around the UK between 1996 and 2007, attending over 50 shows. The track plan comprises a double track mainline which passes through three levels; on the middle level it is joined by two slow lines, making a quadruple section. The lower level mainline is equipped with overhead catenary for electric services. A disused branch line from the upper level has been taken over by a preservation society, who are in the process of restoring it for steam and diesel operation. The station has been renovated for use as a base for passenger services and locomotive restoration and a limited shuttle service is operating over part of the line. The movement of trains is fully automated using magnets, reed switches and relays. The layout was sold in 2007 and a full description is available at
