Offering an exceptional Wrenn locomotive which has withstood the test of time. Only this version is the highly rated City of Carlisle 4-6-2 Duchess Class issued between 1980-88.

Like the Castle Class the Duchess is a very popular Wrenn locomotive. Production in Basildon Essex commenced in 1977 through to 1986 with other examples being made from 1987 up to the factory’s’ closure in 1992 (Period Four). Later models came with a MK2 chassis and or larger wheels.

This example is offered in a partially lined maroon BR liver with an unlined tender, running number 46238 and smoke deflectors. It is reported that only 322 were made during its production at Basildon Essex. The locomotive is in original condition, complete in every respect and includes original box, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue! The box underneath is clearly stamped in red with a packer no.6 code.

The Duchess locomotive used by London Midland & Scottish Railways was a class of express passenger steam locomotives designed by William Stanier. The Duchess class got its name as a result of being a non-streamlined,although to engine-men they were often known as Big Lizzies.
