  The LMS "Black Five" 4-6-0s were designed under the direction of William Stanier.  They depart from previous LMS practice by having tapered boilers, a feature which William Stanier brought with him from his previous employment with the GWR.  The first example was introduced to traffic in 1934 or 1935.
