Wrenn W2302 King George V1 Coronation Class Streamliner

Wrenn W2302 King George V1 Coronation Class Streamliner - LMS Maroon - RARE

This is the RARE Wrenn W2302 "King George V1" Coronation Class Streamliner Locomotive, in LMS Maroon, running number 6244. This was introduced by Wrenn, Basildon in late 1985, only 194 were issued before being withdrawn from production in 1987.

The Coronation Class Streamliners were a departure away by Wrenn in using their own castings. The main body of the Locomotive was a Keyser white metal kit, assembled, finish sprayed and baked by Basildon. They all used 3 Pole motors, the chassis being a City class with shaved valve boxes to fit the Keyser body shell. Cab detail was also added.

The "King Geoge V1" and very rare "Duchess of Rutland" also suffered from lining loss over the years, so please be care full when you purchase as the original lining is no longer available. Remember the bottom of the inner box should always display a Packer No stamp circa 1985 or 1986 or 1987. Nothing prior to or beyond these dates will be genuine.
