I think you are all getting confused as to what picture the comment was made about. Clan Line does have a Mk2 support coach, as shown in the picture. The other pictures showing the Black 5 has Mk1's behind it. Clan Line's support coach is named Mercator.

Although my preference is for dirty black Ex LMS locos, I have had a soft spot for Clan Line ever since she, together with Black 5 no 5000, Standard 4 tank 80079 and A4 Sir Nigel Gresley), were stabled at Northwich loco shed for a few days in May 1980 en-route to the Rocket 150 celebrations at Rainhill.

The Area Manager arranged for a shed open day.
As you can see Elf & Safety was a lot more relaxed back then!
