Wrenn W2230 BO-BO Diesal Loco - BR BLUE - D8017 - VERY RARE

Wrenn W2230 BO-BO Diesel Loco - BR BLUE - D8017 - VERY RARE

This is the VERY RARE BLUE W2230 BO-BO Diesel Electric Locomotive running number D8017. This running number is normally seen on the BR Green version only. This is only the second example I have seen as a Wrenn Collector of many years, the other last year was received unboxed.It does not have the British Rail late totem (as the Green version), or the BR white striped motif (as the blue version). The facia buffer boards are black as the standard blue versions.

This is complete in a Period 3 box with packing rings, tissue and original single page instruction sheet. The box ends are stamped "W2230 BO-BO DIESEL ELECTRIC BLUE B.R " and the white inner box is stamped "Packer No 6" in black ink with the usual sellotape residue marks correct for this period.

I believe this variation of the W2230 is genuine Wrenn, Basildon, and would have occured long before the "copying era" between 1992 (Basildon closure) and 2002, when Wrenn was bought by collectors.
