Nameplate, THE ARTISTS' RIFLEMAN. Ex LMS 4-6-0 Royal Scot Class Locomotive built Derby 1932 and originally numbered 6164, later 46164. It was one of the first batch to be converted with a 2A boiler and double chimney in 1943 and one of the first to be withdrawn in 1962. Allocated most of its life to Edge Hill, a late move to Sheffield saw different workings to what it was used to. Note: There were 8 Royal Scot loco names that carried an apostrophe, this is the only one to carry the possessive plural coming at the end of the word. The Volunteer Corps was formed in 1859 by Lord Peel in response to patriotic fervor due to the threat of invasion from Napoleon III of France. The Artist Rifles was formed in 1860 along with many of the other famous London regiments as part of this Corps. A wooden, maroon splasher accompanies.
