    Afternoon I thought I would share a picture of one of my mint Wrenn tank locos.

    Thank you Toto. I have just been running it on my test plank and it brings back memories of the odour which comes from these old locos.
    I will certainly be showing more of my stash.

    I used to have a few damaged Wrenn R1's, seem to remember making a makey up Garret with a couple of them, and was looking at making a NSR 0-6-0T tank, by combining the R1 chassis and a set of valve gear from a Duchess - never happened as I couldn't afford the duchess valve gear.

    Don't forget to oil the felt bushes.

    This is my bible to all Wrenn locomotives produced. I don’t go for the new Wrenn stuff produced by Dapol.
    It’s has to be original or not at all.

    This is another one of my pristine models. A Wrenn W2246 2-6-4 Caledonian Railway lined blue livery tank.

    I’m glad they didn’t make an O gauge version because it would cost a lot and I think I would have to get one. :thumbs:

    That’s not a bad thing, I’m so pleased I purchased this loco when I did.
