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 Southern Green running number 1127 was produced between 1974-89. In all my years of collecting I have NOT seen many in such great condition.
The locomotive remains TEST RUN only and DISPLAYED from new. Complete in every respect and includes original P3 box, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue! No collection should be without a fine example Wrenn, model reference W2207
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.
