Details

A fine preserved model of the 4-6-2 Duchess Class Locomotive. This example is the “City of Birmingham” running number 46235 in British Rail Green Livery! The locomotive was introduced by Wrenn between 1973-91.

There were two variations produced during this period which included approximately 100 with the mark two chassis, model reference W2228. This example was produced with a lined tender. This locomotive is becoming ever harder to find especially as more often than not they are all play worn!

The locomotive is complete in every respect and includes a period six G & R Wrenn lid, original inner box, packaging, together with the instruction manual and usual holding rings and tissue!

The Duchess locomotive used by London Midland & Scottish Railways was a class of express passenger steam locomotives designed by William Stanier. The Duchess class got its name as a result of being a non-streamlined,although to engine-men they were often known as Big Lizzies.
