This locomotive is a rare example of a loco built by Pikrose & Co Ltd of Audenshaw, Manchester. Pikrose were the successor to Wingrove & Rogers, who built many battery electric locomotives – there are several Wingroves in the MRT collection. This locomotive was new to the Kettering plant depot of Sir Robert McAlpine & Son Ltd, the well known civil engineering contractor. Very little is known of its working career, and it was only used on one known contract before entering preservation, joining the MRT collection on 21/1/2006.
