Wrenn W.2226 M2 - City of London Locomotive - Late 1989 - VERY RARE

Wrenn W.2226 M2 - City of London Locomotive - Late 1989 - VERY RARE This is the VERY RARE W.2226M2 "City of London" 4-6-2 Locomotive in BR Maroon, running number 46245. This is a 5 Pole version, offering smoother control at low speeds,  and its RARETY is signifigant by the box end stamp as shown. The M2 version was only produced by Wrenn, Basildon between 1988/89, totalled only 118 and the majority had the "M2" handwritten in at the factory and "5 Pole" was added using a John Bull stamp. When the stamp was available (circa December 1989) it was used as shown. I have only seen 2 examples of this over the last  20 years as a Wrenn Collector. Please always check the later Period 4 box type (box has green colour hue) and inner box stamp which needs to denote late 1989. eg 91247 denoting 47th week, 12 month, 1989 as production build.
