This fine Wrenn model W2240 is of the Standard 8F Class locomotive in LMS Black, runnning number 3144. This model locomotive is one of the few which spans all four periods of production Wrenn Model Railways undertook at Basildon Essex.
This example was in production from 1970-1980 Alternative examples and a LIMITED EDITION were made during the other periods. As all model railway enthusiast know, this is the “WORKHORSE” for freight operations on any layout.
The locomotive is finished in an alternative YELLOW & RED piped lettering, hence why they are very seldom found NOT play worn and even rarer boxed. 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!
The London Midland and Scottish Railway’s 8F class 2-8-0 heavy freight locomotive is a class of steam locomotive designed for hauling heavy freight. 852 were built between 1935 and 1946 (not all to LMS order), as a freight version of William Stanier’s successful Black Five, and the class saw extensive service overseas during and after the Second World War.
