    Not disputing where the numbering initially started but simply pointing out that there were Black 5s numbered below 5000.

    Didnt make it clear. Sorry. 5000 was the lowest number of the initial oldest batches
    The 4 numbered locos came later when they ran out of 5 numbers

    Will that result in an insipid, p*ss weak, watered-down yellow looking engine that leaves a bad taste in your mouth?

    Not at all. It was a perfectly valid comment, which could have been made by any of us; and it was only a comment, not a complaint. This thread has suffered more than most from drift.
