Wrenn W2302A Duchess of Rutland Coronation Sreamliner - LMS Maroon -V/Rare

This is the Very Rare Wrenn W2302A "Duchess of Rutland" Coronation Class Streamliner introduced by Basildon in 1985 and withdrawn from production in 1987. Running number 6228.  Records indicate that 94 were issued, however based on my experience I believe fewer were issued.This was a departure away from Wrenn using their own body/tender tooling as the main body of the Locomotive was a Keyser white metal kit, finished and sprayed by Basildon.

All were supplied with a 3 pole motor, cab detail, and modified Princess Class chassis to fit the Keyser body.Many of the examples ( particularly Duchess of Rutland and King George IV) suffered from gold lining loss due to age.

Other than W2303 "City of Bristol" this is the most difficult of the genuine Wrenn Streamliners to find today.
