The London & Midland Railway (LMS) rebuilt two former London & North Western Railway (LNWR accident damaged Claughton Class locomotives at Crewe Works in 1930.

The final ten locomotives were regarded as brand new construction and were completed in 1934.

The Patriot’s were a smaller boiler version of the Royal Scots and were often referred to by enthusiasts as Baby Scots. The Patriot locomotives were used for express passenger and parcels/express freight. The Bachmann Branchline model depicts the locomotive in its original as built condition.

Following World War 2, 18 of the Class were rebuilt between 1946 and 1949 with the Stanier 2A boilers and had new cabs and tenders. The remainder were retained in traffic in original condition. the first locomotive was withdrawn in February 1961 and the last in December 1965.
