This Class R1 Tank 0-6-0T (ex-H/Dublo -1968) shares a chassis block with the 2-6-0T. The tool for this was lost in 1898 as a result few R1 locomotives were produced after this date. This locomotive in British Rail Green running number 31340 was produced between 1969-78. In all my years of collecting I have NOT seen many in such great condition.
The locomotive has been fully serviced, is complete in every respect and includes original Wrenn lid stamped (W2206) original inner box, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue! No layout should be without a fine example Wrenn, model reference W2206
For many years the South Eastern Railway (SER) had possessed very few locomotives designed for shunting. Several other railways favoured the 0-6-0T wheel arrangement for shunting. So in 1887 it was decided to introduce a class of 0-6-0T locomotives specifically for shunting and for hauling local goods trains. The R class locomotives were designed by James Stirling as a new class. 25 were built at Ashford Works between 1888 and 1898.
