Almost a week on from the previous picture last week, the former LMSR Class 5MT engines 45407 and 44871 are in fine free running form as they bowl past All Stretton in Shropshire at speed.

"Black Fives" were the most numerous single type of steam locomotive on Britain's railways, designed by Sir William A. Stanier and in construction from 1934 and 1951, 842 were built and they were the stalwart engines for all manner of tasks on both the London, Midland & Scottish and, later on the nationalised British Railways.

Some eighteen engines are still in existence.

45407 carries the name "Lancashire Fusilier".
