During the First World War, Britain commissioned two armored trains. The trains followed the shipping tradition of being given names. Number one was HMT Norna. Once complete, it was stationed at Edinburgh, Scotland to provide protection for the north. Train number two was named HMT Alice and was based at Norfolk to provide protection along the East coast of England.

When the Second World War broke out, the British government still saw the potential of having such vehicles available as a quick response to the threat of a possible invasion. This time, Britain commissioned the conversion of 13 locomotives into armored trains.
