With the success of the Rainhill Trials Robert Stephenson & Co supplied 26 locomotives to the Liverpool and Manchester Railway within 3 years. Eight of them being similar to ROCKET.

ROCKET worked on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway from it's opening in 1830 until 1834. It was sold in 1836 to work on Lord Carlisle's Brampton Railway in Cumberland. It may have returned to the makers for an overhaul before going to Cumberland. The Brampton Railway was a horse drawn wagon way taking coal from various local coal mines to Brampton. In 1836 a new railway was built of 3 sections. Locomotive hauled at both ends and rope incline in the middle. ROCKET worked one section by itself.

It operated until 1840, then was stored out of use. It returned to the makers in 1851 for restoration, to be displayed at the Great Exhibition, but was never exhibited. It returned to owners in Cumberland.

In 1862 it was donated to the Patent Office Museum, South Kensington, London. In 1883 it moved, along with the whole museum collection to a new building nearby, which became the Science Museum. At present it is on loan to Manchester Science & Industry Museum. On display in the entrance hall, with plenty of public interest.
