No. 5775 is an expample of an 0-6-0 pannier tank which was introduced for the Great Western Railway for local passenger and freight trains in 1929 by Charles Collett. With minor modifications over 850 of the class were produced, the last being built in 1949. No. 5775 was built in 1929 and withdrawn in 1963. It was then purchased by London Transport who used it on maintenance trains until the 1970s. The pictire shows no 5775 at Keighley on the KWVR in August 1992
