These small steam locomotives were built at Andrew Barclays and Sons Ltd's Caledonia Works in Kilmarnock, Scotland. They are saddle tank locomotives with a 0-4-0 wheel arrangement (meaning the water tank is on top and around the boiler). This type of locomotive is preserved in large numbers, notably by the Ayrshire Railway Preservation Society, Swindon and Cricklade Railway, Bowes Railway, East Anglian Railway Museum, Buckingham Railway Society etc. The total number is about 104 locomotives. They are in a handy state of preservation. Some are preserved as static exhibits but the appearance of others is more like their condition before scrapping. There are 31 locomotives in operational condition, depending on the current technical condition.

In the history of British steam locomotives, no locomotives have ever been as universally popular as the Stanier 5MT class, the Black Fives. They were undoubtedly the most efficient design of general purpose mixed traffic engine ever seen in Britain. Suitable for almost any duty. They could be seen all over the LMS system from Thurso in the far north, to Bournemouth (on the SDJR) in the south.
Of the 18 preserved (including 44901 and 45293 which have still to be restored) half were withdrawn in the last month of steam on BR (January 1968) and purchased for preservation. Three others (including 45000 which is part of the National collection) were purchased upon withdrawal for preservation. 6 (including 44901) were recovered from Barry scrapyard.
