Originally supplied bu us, a STUNNING example of the LMS Experimental Grey livery Duchess Class named “DUCHESS OF ABERCORN” locomotive! This locomotive was introduced by Wrenn for a short period between 1990-1992 model reference W2294. During this short production run, 151 examples were reported to have been made!
This particular example with running number 6234 has remained a display model showing NO real signs of being run other than periodically test run from new and displayed. There is no flaking to the tender nor discolouration to the engine.
Being ultra critical we found a pin sized dot to the tender on one side visible in photo two just! Also a manufacturing flaw in the boiler paintwork (picture two boiler center). The box is stamped in black with a five digit production code, Packer no.2 date reference 90 207 confirming a build date 2nd week February 1990!
The locomotive is complete in every respect and includes its original box,original packaging. Also included original Wrenn manual, usual holding rings and tissue!
NOTE: We have down graded the locomotive due a minor factory related paint blemish The locomotive has been tested & is functional. To retain it value as a display model we have chosen not to service. Should the buyer wish to permanently run we will service F.O.C
