Wrenn "AS PRESERVED" Sir Nigel Gresley 4498 LNER Garter Blue Class A4 W2310
An absolutely STUNNING RARE EX_DISPLAY ONLY model of a Wrenn A4 Pacific . This locomotive in LNER Garter Blue, is the "AS PRESERVED” SIR NIGEL GRESLEY model W2310 produced by Wrenn with running number 4498.
This locomotive was made with a MK1 chassis and has always been a favourite amongst collectors and layouts across the country. This locomotive was introduced in 1991 with production finishing in 1992 Period Four just before the factory closure at Basildon!
The exact numbers made are reported to be 53 ONLY!! In all my years of collecting I have only see a handful. The last one was GEORGE WRENN'S own model. This locomotive remains PROBABLY TEST RUN only, is complete in every respect and includes: original box including a date stamp of 11392, build date March 1992, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue. All of which is reflected in the asking price!
The LNER's Express Pacific designs were probably the most famous of the LNER locomotives. Of these Pacific's, the A4 is probably the most famous of all: Its distinctive streamlined shape has come to be a symbol of 1930s luxury and speed. Even today, it is an A4 which holds the world speed record for any steam locomotive in the world.
WE CHALLENGE ANYONE TO FIND BETTER! AN OPPORTUNITY NOT TO BE MISSED!
NOTE: TO PRESERVE ITS VALUE AS A DISPLAY MODEL IN OUR OPINION PARAMOUNT, THE LOCOMOTIVE REMAINS UN-SERVICED! THEREFORE SHOULD THE PURCHASER WISH TO RUN THIS ENGINE WE WILL SERVICE F.O.C PRIOR TO DISPATCH!
