52322 carries this builder's plate with the construction date of 1896. Whilst it is correct that the loco was built at Horwich works, it wasn't built by the LMS. It was built by the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway. The LMS didn't come into existence until 1923, absorbing the L&Y in the process. These companies often placed new works plates like this on their inherited locos.
