Wrenn W2264 Duchess of Hamilton - BR Maroon - Variations

The Wrenn W2264 Duchess of Hamilton in BR Maroon is in my view  one of the most under rated Locomotives that Wrenn, Basildon produced. Less than 300 were issued between 1981 and 1986, ALL with the MK 1 chassis, 3 pole armature, flange less centre wheels, standard pick up and late BR tender totem. This Locomotive is much harder to find today than its Black LMS counterpart.

In my opinion 2 variations of this Locomotive/tender combination were issued between 1981 and 1986.

1st Variation - Matching Yellow/black lining on Locomotive Valve box and tender, maroon tender top with late BR totem, maroon tender base with hangers highlighted in black

2nd Variation - Locomotive identical to Variation 1, maroon tender top with late BR totem and no lining, and all black tender base.

These variations are shown in the picture.
