46521 was built at Swindon Works as part of a batch of Western Region Ivatt Class 2s. Because of this she was based at ex-Great Western depots, including Oswestry and Machynlleth, but was withdrawn from service in 1966 and was sent to Barry scrapyard during 1967. Her first home in preservation was at the Severn Valley Railway from 1971, restored at Bridgnorth in 1974. After several years of work a complete rebuild was finished at Loughborough in late 2011. And (now painted for the first time in black) her boiler ticket now expires in 2021.
