Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 Steam Locomotive - 'Black 5'

68 comments
As a 14-year-old budding LEGO Designer, I have combined my obsession for LEGO and Steam Locomotives to create this model. LEGO has formed a huge part of my home education and after many months refining this model, I have committed the monumental step of publishing this, my third submission (please check out my other LEGO IDEAS Projects).
  
This is my representation of the ‘Black Five’ specifically, a Stanier Class 5 4-6-0 Steam Locomotive. William Stanier designed the Black Five, and it was built by the London Midland Scottish (LMS) railway. As a mixed traffic locomotive, the Black Five was used for both passenger and freight traffic, with eighteen examples surviving into steam preservation.
 
I really relish the challenge of building realistic, authentic and detailed Steam Locomotives that actually run on LEGO track and particularly curves and points. Ultimately, I would like to create a collection of iconic locomotives in celebration of steam heritage.

This model was designed using Stud.io software.

Whilst I have used virtual LEGO as a tool to create the model, I have been diligent in creating a strong LEGO build, with legal LEGO connections that could withstand real life ‘play or display’ by children and adults alike.

I hope this model successfully portrays to the LEGO Community my passion and energy for LEGO modelling. Whilst I am relentless as my own critic, I am keen to incorporate through updates any constructive feedback from fellow LEGO enthusiasts. Ultimately, my aim is to make this model truly awesome, for the enjoyment of all.
