    Default British Rail Standard Steam Locomotives

    1951 was the year of the Standard Steam Locomotive. The Railway Magazine of the time focussed on the development of these locos. Rather than just looking backwards to those days, it is good to listen to and read things from the perspective of the time!

    The Standards had their own appeal, but very few would argue that the Standard 5 4-6-0 5MT generated the same enthusiasm as Stanier's masterpiece, the Black 5, and its Jubilee cousin.
