Wrenn W2228 City of Birmingham City Class Locomotive - BR Green

The popularity of the Wrenn "City of Birmingham" City Class Locomotive amongst Wrenn and Hornby Dublo enthusiasts is well known. In BR Green, running number 46235, it is seen on "OO" Gauge private and club layouts throughout the world. Produced by Wrenn, Basildon over Periods 3/4 over 4500 were issued prior to closure in 1992. Because of their prolonged layout use, finding an example in "near mint" condition is becoming more difficult today. Another factor is the number that have been changed (resprayed/relined/renumbered) to a more lucrative Wrenn Locomotive.Many Birmingham, London, City Class Locomotives and Winston Churchill Spamcams all suffered this fate during 1992 to 2002 when Wrenn became very collectable. Please look for provinence when purchasing.

Always remember, on lined Wrenn Locomotives with tenders, the lining on the tender should match either/all the "cabside", "boiler" or "valve box" lining of the Locomotive. If it does not, their is a good chance something has been changed!
