These were the BR standard version of the useful and flexible class 5 locomotives developed by the 'big four' companies, incorporating the best features of the Black 5, B1 and Hall classes, along with the standardised fittings and locomotive layout.
These 5MT locomotives were capable of undertaking a wide range of duties. Powerful enough to haul express passenger trains and fast goods trains the type were often found working trains which used secondary routes, where larger locomotives were prohibited.
This model of 73014 is paired with a BR1 type tender and finished in the BR lined green livery with later lion holding wheel crest.
