Welcome to The LMS-Patriot Project

Our project aims:

  • To build a new ‘Patriot’ steam locomotive to the original Sir Henry Fowler parallel boiler design, capable of running on the mainline.
  • To create the new Royal British Legion Endorsed National Memorial engine, named ‘The Unknown Warrior’.
  • To be complete in time for the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice in 2018.

Help us achieve our aim with a donation, sponsorship, or a loan.

The fact that none of the original 52 ‘Patriot’ class locomotives was preserved leaves a massive gap in the story of LMS express power. A new ‘Patriot’ will provide the link between the ‘Royal Scot’ and ‘Jubilee’ classes and will clearly enhance the UK steam collection.

The new National Memorial Engine will be a unique contribution to the 2018 Armistice Day Centenary commemorations, and a permanent memorial to all fallen servicemen and women.
