    ABOUT THIS CONTENT
    A total of 842 “Black Five” locomotives were built for the London, Midland and Scottish and later British Railways; and, a truly definitive add-on is unleashed, in the form of Partner Programme developer Bossman Games’ fantastic LMS Stanier Class 5!



    What became one of the more memorable locomotives in British rail history starts its story in the early 1930s, when William Stanier, Chief Mechanical Engineer of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS), sought to design a new and suitably powerful mixed-traffic locomotive. In his early LMS days, Stanier used his engineering skills which he acquired while working for GWR, however steadily refining and honing his own unique style of locomotive.
    When the LMS needed more powerful traction, Stanier’s response was equivalent to the GWR’s Hall Class, a 4-6-0 with a rating of 5 for passenger, and 5 for freight – the Stanier Class 5.
    Originally the Class 5 fleet was known as “Black Stanier”, in contrast to the “Red Stanier” Jubilee Class; however, when ‘5’ was seen adorned on the cab side from 1940 onwards, a new “Black Five” name befell the fleet.
    The do-anything attitude of the Black Five saw their popularity rise with both crews and enthusiasts alike – it could turn up almost anywhere, get the job done, and look good while doing it – the fleet of 842 was a familiar sight right up until the end of steam.
    The Black Fives were sadly scrapped in droves, but an impressive 18 were saved for use on both preservation railways and mainline railtours, and the preserved fleet has a history of ‘acting’ by means of temporary alternative numbers to revive lost members of the class.




    The Stanier Class 5 from Bossman Games arrives with no comparison and includes:

    • Circa-2018 representations of preserved 45407, 44871 & 45212, including 45407's appearance as 45157 “The Glasgow Highlander”
    • British Railways with Early & Late Emblem, Clean & Weathered
    • LMS 1930s Lined Black, Unlined Black both Clean & Weathered
    • Welded and rivetted tenders
    • MK1 Coaches in BR Maroon with BR1 bogies
    • Circa-2018 MK2A BFK Support Coach

    With the ability to drive any example of the class, in both LMS and BR eras, plus preserved examples, a whole range of advanced features, incredible detail throughout, 10 Career scenarios and so much more, the Stanier Class 5 rightfully earns its place within the Pro Range!

  • Ich habe sie mir heute im Sale gekauft. Eine beeindruckende Lok, schon das Horn ist schauderhaft schön gelungen. Eigentlich ein absolutes Muss für Dampflokliebhaber. Aber auch eine echte Herausforderung. Habe mich lange mit beschäftigt, auch mit meinen etwas mickrigen Englischkenntnissen durchs Manual und durchs britische Forum durchgekämpft und geschafft die tolle Lok, die in vielen Varianten angeboten wird mit 10 MK 1 die Steigung ab Kingswear gut hoch zu bekommen.
    Zwei Gründe haben mich allerdings zur Rückgabe bewegt : Ich habe ein großes Arsenal an verschiedenen Loks, darunter auch viele Advanced oder Expert Loks deren Funktionen manchmal so schwierig/vielfältig sind, dass ich wenn ich sie nach einiger Pause wieder mal auf die Schienen setze ich immer wieder mal überfordert bin und jedes Mal ein Handbuch suchen ist nicht so toll. Der andere Punkt ist, dass die vielen Funktionen schon einiges an Performance schlucken, hatte deshalb auch schon einen Dump. Vermute allerdings dass die vielen mitgelieferten Szenarien normalerweise problemlos laufen müssten (West Highland, Settle, North Wales 10(!) Szenarien)
    Für Leute die gerne ihre Dampfer z.B. von Victory Works im Advanced Modus fahren sicher einer Spitzenlok, vermutlich einmalig im gesamten TS. Eigentlich benötigt man hier einen Mehrspielermodus, einer fährt und der andere sorgt für den Dampf, so ist es schließlich auch in der Realität....
