Details

A fine collectors example of a Wrenn W2212AM2 "Sir Nigel Gresley" A4 4-6-2 Pacific Locomotive in LNER Garter Blue, running number 4498. This example comes direct to market from GEORGE WRENN's own personal collection. This version of the Sir Nigel Gresley was made with a MK2 Chassis and 5 Pole motor. This model was introduced by Wrenn, Basildon in 1987 and production continued until 1990. During this period, only 170 were produced.

This Basildon built locomotive is becoming very harder to find, particular in AS NEW quality.The locomotive remains UN-RUN and is complete in every respect. Complete with original box, packaging, manual, usual holding rings and tissue! The underneath is clearly stamped in black packer no.2 production code 90623. The date of manufacture June 1990.

The LNER's Express Pacific designs were probably the most famous of the LNER locomotives. Of these Pacific's, the A4 is probably the most famous of all: Its distinctive streamlined shape has come to be a symbol of 1930s luxury and speed. Even today, it is an A4 which holds the world speed record for any steam locomotive in the world. 

NOTE: THIS LOCOMOTIVE CAME FROM GEORGE WRENN'S OWN COLLECTION SOLD BY HIS DIRECT DESCENDANTS! THIS EXAMPLE WILL COME COMPLETE WITH AN EXTRACT FROM THE ORIGINAL SALES CATALOGUE.
