This fine Wrenn model W2224A is of the Standard 8F Class locomotive in BR Black, running number 48290. This version is one of only 450 reported to have been made.

This locomotive model is one of the few which span all four periods of production Wrenn Railways undertook at Basildon Essex. This example was in production from 1983-1992. The date stamp of this locomotive is 89625 and includes packer no.3. This confirms a build of June 1989, VERY late build indeed.

Alternative examples and a LIMITED EDITION were made during the other periods. As all model railway enthusiast know, this is the "WORKHORSE" for freight operations on any layout. Hence why they are very seldom found NOT play worn and even rarer boxed.

The locomotive is complete in every respect and includes the original box made by Wrenn Bowlers Croft Basildon Essex. Comes complete with instruction manual and usual holding rings and tissue! Make sure YOUR layout is NOT without!
