BLACK 5 Locomotive

The Locomotive was built by Armstrong Whitworth in 1937 and spent most of its life at Agecroft motive power depot near Manchester. The shed code was 26B and this is reflected in the name of the company that owns the locomotive – The 26B Railway Co Ltd. In 1965 it was withdrawn from BR service and sent to the Barry Island scrap yard.
