Details

As per the Castle & Duchess Class certain Wrenn Rebuilt Bulleid Pacific locomotives were made across ALL four periods at Basildon Essex.

This model reference W2235 is the BR Green named “Barnstable” running number 34005 Locomotive. Like the other models a very popular Wrenn locomotive. Production in Basildon Essex commenced in 1968 (Period One) with other examples being made throughout the remaining periods leading up to the factory’s’ closure in 1992 (Period Four).

This (Period Three) example again has probably only ever been perodically test been run and stored long term which is very unusual for such a popular engine. The locomotive is in original condition, complete in every respect and includes original box period six lid, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue!

Due to problems with some of the more novel features of Bulleid's design, all members of the class were rebuilt by British Railways during the late 1950s. The class members were named after the Merchant Navy shipping lines involved in the Battle of the Atlantic. The Merchant Navy class operated until the end of Southern steam in July 1967.
