This type of locomotive is one of the few which spans all four periods of production that Wrenn undertook at Basildon Essex. Alternative examples include a LIMITED EDITION, a BR Green & LMS Maroon.
As all model railway enthusiast know, this is the “WORKHORSE” for freight operations on any layout. Hence why they are very seldom found NOT play worn and boxed. This version is RARE and highly sort after by avid collectors! With a limited run of 207 examples produced between 1988-1992 they are becoming extremely difficult to source in such great condition.
The locomotive is complete in every respect and includes original box, packaging in retail shelf condition. Comes complete with instruction manual and usual holding rings and tissue! Furthermore the box is clearly stamped underneath in BLACK with packer number 3 and date code 89934. This example was produced in 1989 therefore one of the first to be made!! Make sure YOUR layout is NOT without!
