Hornby Dublo 2218 4MT BR Tank Locomotive -2 Rail - 80033

The Hornby Dublo 2218 4MT 2-6-4 Tank Locomotive in BR black is one of the most popular locomotives that Meccano Limited issued between 1959 and 1965. Equally at home on a layout pulling goods or passenger traffic, it has become the "workhorse" to those operating mixed traffic layouts.

The 2218 has the late BR crest and plastic front/rear wheeled bogies, which was carried on during the Wrenn Period 1/2 eras (1966-1971). The main change to the original Meccano tooling that Wrenn made, was the hole in the rear of the Loco was filled in, and of course Wrenn couplings were fitted instead of the metal "clutch" type couplings.

Most examples today are "playworn" and it is rare to find a " near mint boxed" example.
