Wrenn W.2282 Sparrow Hawk A4 Locomotive - NE Black - V/RARE

This Wrenn W.2282 A4 Class Locomotive "Sparrow Hawk" in North Eastern Region Wartime Black running number 4463,  is one of the most difficult to find today for collectors and runners alike. Only 98 were produced by Wrenn, Basildon between 1989 - 1992 when Basildon closed. ALL were issued in late Period 4, whereas "Peregrine" and "Gannet"in Periods 3/4 with far greater production numbers.Also all were fitted with the MK1 chassis.

The actual production figures for "Sparrow Hawk" were as follows;

1989 - 75

1990 - 6

1991 - 7

1992 - 10  

The transfers used on each type of the A4 Wartime Black Locomotives were unique, hence avoid transfer damaged Locomotives/tenders and fakes. Some were copied between 1992 - 2002.

This is one of my favourite Locomotives in the Collection!
