Seldom seen RARE example Wrenn, model reference W2206A. 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 1989 as a result few R1 locomotives were produced after this date.
This locomotive in BR Green running number 31128 was produced between 1985-88. The numbers were limited to 95. The locomotive is in original condition, complete in every respect. Includes original Wrenn box, packaging, manual, usual holding rings and tissue! Date stamp P3/08313
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.
TO PRESERVE ITS VALUE AS A DISPLAY MODEL IN OUR OPINION PARAMOUNT, ALTHOUGH FULLY FUNCTIONAL! SHOULD THE PURCHASER WISH TO RUN THIS ENGINE WE WILL SERVICE F.O.C PRIOR TO DISPATCH!
