The British Railways Standard Class 5MT 4-6-0 was one of the standard classes of steam locomotives built by British Railways in the 1950s. The first of the class, number 73100, was outshopped from Derby in April 1951 and 30 were in service by January 1952. 172 were built, essentially being a development of the LMS black five. Five of this class have been preserved, including number 73129 at the Midland Railway Centre in Derbyshire.
