A very rare find this 4-6-2 Rebuilt Bulleid Pacific Locomotive named “Dartmoor” in BR Green livery number 34021.
This superb faultless example of the Dartmoor was introduced by Wrenn in 1990 and production continued until the final year of production at Basildon. Two versions were produced one with Orange-Red and Black lining the other with Gold and Black. Overall it has been reported that between the two examples only 300 were ever built.
What makes this locomotive special is the condition which is hard to find due to the limited production run by Wrenn. The locomotive is in original condition, complete in every respect and includes original box, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue! We have been unable to fault this earlier lined example making it a fine addition to any collection.The box has been clearly stamped packer no.2 90834 confirming a production date of August 1990
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.
