Built in 1932 at the Crewe Works of the London, Midland & Scottish Railway it originally carried No. 5974 and was technically a rebuilt Claughton Class locomotive, although only the first two locomotives utilised the frames and wheels from the earlier London & North Western locomotives. It was renumbered in 1934 as No. 5506. These were the last locomotives to be built during Sir Henry Fowler’s tenure as Chief Mechanical Engineer of the LMS, although only the first two had been completed by the time of his retirement. A total of 52 locomotives were built between 1930 and 1934.
Originally allocated to Crewe, No. 45506 had spells at Bushbury, Willesden, Carlisle Upperby and Crewe North before being withdrawn from Bristol Barrow Road on 17th March 1962. It was cut up at Crewe Works having run over 1.3 million miles in traffic.
The locomotive was named on Wednesday 15th September 1948 – during a ceremony held at London Euston station – by Field-Marshal Montgomery. At the time No. 45506 was allocated to Carlisle Upperby depot.
The Royal Pioneer Corps had contacted the newly formed London Midland Region of British Railways asking if it were possible for one of their Locomotives to be named to commemorate the work of the Corps. The Locomotive was one of several members of the class to be named after regiments of the British Army and men who served with distinction in the Great War and it carried plaques with the crest of ‘The Royal Pioneer Corps’ – presented by the Royal Pioneer Corps Association.
Following withdrawal, the name ‘The Royal Pioneer Corps’ was applied to Class 45 No. D54, the class which replaced many of the Patriot locomotive on the Midland Mainline routes working in and out of London St. Pancras.
