Short History of Royal Scot
The original 6100 was the first of its class and was built by the North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow in 1927 and was given the name 'Royal Scot'.
During 1933 number 6152 'The King's Dragoon Guardsman' and Royal Scot number 6100 swapped over their numbers and name plates. They were never to be swapped back.
Number 6152 had been built at Derby Works in 1930. This was the locomotive that went to the USA and was at the NVR in 2017.
Royal Scott was renumbered 46100 by British Railways in 1948. In 1950 it was rebuilt with a 2A taper boiler. The words "Prior to conversion" were added to its nameplates then. In 1962 46100 was withdrawn from service.
46100 was bought by Billy Butlin. The Locomotivet was set on a plinth at his Skegness Holiday camp and was there till the 1971. It then went to the Bressingham Steam Museum berefor going to Pete Waterman's LNWR Heritage workshops in Crewe.
