This is a new page we have put in for the steam enthusiasts. We will give out information as we get it. There are a lot of steam activities in the Highlands, so it should be a good site for all interested in steam. Visit the West Coast Railways website for more information.

All the photos and videos that you will see on this site are taken by us and are in the Scottish Highlands.

The London Midland and Scottish Railway Stanier Class 5 4-6-0, commonly known as the Black Five, is a class of 4-6-0 steam locomotives. It was introduced by William Stanier in 1934 and 842 were built between then and 1951. Several members of the class survived to the last day of steam on British Railways in 1968, and eighteen are preserved.
