Sir William Stanier brought the Churchward standardisation concept to the LMS when he joined the company as Chief Mechanical Engineer. Adapting Swindon practice to the needs of the LMS saw the creation of a large class of 4-6-0 locomotives in power class 5, which had proven the most useful mixed traffic type on the GWR. The new Black 5 quickly became a favourite with LMS loco men to, having capacity to spare for regular cross-country passenger services and fast goods trains, giving confidence when something heavier or faster had to be taken on. Black 5s were among the last steam locomotives withdrawn from service with British Railways in August 1968.
