I went to Lancaster Castle Station on Wednesday 14th September 2011.
To film the last Fellsman excursion of the year called the Lakelander. to
Carlisle via the Settle to Carlisle Line.
The engine was LMS Class 5MT 4-6-0 no 45231 The Sherwood Forester
No history of British steam locomotives would be complete without a look at the ubiquitous ‘Black Five’. The ‘Black 5’ locomotive was built to a design by William Stanier, Chief Mechanical Engineer of the London Midland Scottish Railway (LMSR). Stanier had joined the LMSR from the Great Western Railway in 1932. One of his first tasks on joining the LMSR was the design of a much needed ‘general purpose’ locomotive. The resulting Class 5 engine had a 4-6-0 wheel arrangement.
Along with mainline classmate no. 45407 The Lancashire Fusilier, it is remarkable to find examples of the ‘Black 5’ in regular use on Britain’s railway network, nearly forty years after the end of BR Steam. However, given their place in the history of British steam locomotives, it is wholly appropriate to still find preserved examples of the ‘Black 5’ at work on Britain’s mainline railways.

60163 "Tornado" speeds through Lancaster Castle Station
This Locomotive was built at Darlington and was a new build not a re-build.
The following has been copied from the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust
Our mission: "To build and operate a Peppercorn class A1
Pacific steam locomotive for main line and preserved railway use."
The last of the renowned Peppercorn 'A1' steam locomotives was scrapped in 1966, but now a brand new 'A1', No. 60163 Tornado, has been brought to life.
The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust - a registered charity - has built a completely new 'A1' to the original design and with the help of the latest technology. Fitted with additional water capacity and the latest railway safety electronics, Tornado is fully equipped for today’s main line railway.We have hundreds of supporters and the backing of the best of British business – including William Cook Cast Products, Rolls-Royce, Corus and BAe Systems - helping to raise the £3m needed to complete Tornado.
Tornado made its first public moves in steam in August 2008. However, for the locomotive to have an assured future on the main line we need your help – and you can still come on board for the price of a pint!
That was our concept when we launched the project to build Tornado in 1990. Supporters could covenant (donate) just the monthly equivalent of the price of a pint of beer per week (then £1.25 a pint in the North East!). Much of the locomotive has been funded by this means.
Although Deeds of Covenant have now been replaced by Gift Aid, the Trust is still able to claim back from the Inland Revenue the income/capital gains tax that you have paid on your donations. For every £10.00 that you donate, the Trust could claim an additional £2.82, making your contribution worth £12.82. By becoming a regular donor you can play your part in making history.
It’s that simple – the more regular donations we receive, the quicker Tornado can pay off its debts and the more assured its working future will be.
