No layout should be without a fine example Wrenn, model reference W2204. This Class R1 Tank 0-6-0T (ex-H/Dublo -1968) shares a chassis block with the 2-6-0T. The tool for this was lost in 1898 as a result few R1 locomotives were produced after this date. This locomotive in LMS Red running number 7420 was produced between 1974-89.

In all my years of collecting I have NOT seen many in such great condition. The locomotive has been fully serviced, is complete in every respect and includes original box, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue and service sheet.

So in 1887 it was decided to introduce a class of 0-6-0T locomotives specifically for shunting and for hauling local goods trains.The R class locomotives were designed by James Stirling as a new class. In all 25 were built at Ashford Works between 1888 and 1898. As was typical of Stirling's designs, several components were shared with existing designs, for example the domeless boilers.
