Wrenn Brighton Belle power car in Umber and Cream

Regret larger pictures are not available for these two models


Produced by G&R Wrenn, overall between 1976 and 1992, the power cars were from tooling produced by Wrenn and are not former Hornby Dublo models, however the trailer cars relied upon former Hornby Dublo Pullman car tooling.

Excluding limited editions, production of umber and cream versions is distinguished by two phases, earlier models (prior to 1986) having brown table tops and later producton - as illustrated - having painted white tops.

Blue & Grey trailer cars appear to have been available ahead of the matching power cars being produced, but all have white table tops.

In the opinion of the reviewer these models have a "collectable" value well in excess of the quality of the model, which clearly shows its 1960s/70s origin. The going rate (depending upon state of model and box) for non limited edition power car pairs being £80-£250 (blue & grey) and £170 - £275 (umber and cream).
