Product Description

Sir William A. Stanier’s ‘Jubilee’ 5XP 4-6-0 Class served as the backbone of passenger services for the London Midland & Scottish Railway – as well as the successor London Midland Region of British Railways – for a number of years.  Despite initial design flaws, the class went on to be well-liked by enginemen and enthusiasts alike.  

Stanier’s Jubilees follows the career of this 191-locomotive class from their introduction in 1934 to withdrawal in 1967.  A number are featured during the LMSR period, whilst many are seen during the British Railways years. The engines are featured in over 200 excellent colour and black-and-white images.  

A wide area was worked by the Jubilee Class, ranging from the West Coast Main Line to the Midland Main Line, Glasgow-Perth-Aberdeen route and cross-country from York to Liverpool, in addition to Leeds-Bristol.

The images included have been taken at stations, sheds, lineside and workshops.  Accompanying the pictures are informative captions detailing the locomotive’s history, as well as other interesting details.

Four locomotives were preserved following withdrawal at the end of steam and three are in steam at present.  Hopefully, they will continue to be so and honour their fallen class mates, many of which are remembered here in this collection.
