Offering a very collectable DISPLAY ONLY model Wrenn locomotive which has withstood the test of time. This model reference W2226 is the 4-6-2 LMS Duchess Class Locomotive named “City of London”. Like the Castle Class a very popular Wrenn locomotive. Production in Basildon Essex commenced in 1969 through to 1980 with other examples being made from 1986 up to the 1990 (Period Four). Later models came with a MK2 chassis and or larger wheels.

This is an early period four BR example in their customary ex LMS Maroon livery with running number 46245 and smoke deflectors .The alternative examples with lined tenders are very difficult to find, as are the MK2 chassis examples where less than 120 exist!

The locomotive is in original condition, complete in every respect and includes original P4 box together with, inner packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue!

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.

    I cannot praise the service highly enough.

    This is the first time I have ordered from Wrenn Connoisseur and I cannot praise the service highly enough. The City of London arrived today in superb condition and very well packed. Without doubt I will be ordering from them again.
