Nog meer Barry: Het is namelijk ook een plek in Engeland waar men oude stoomloks bewaard.

My selection of photographs were taken at this legendary location in May 1966 (black and white) and October 1968 (colour).

Many of the locomotives pictured went on to be preserved and restored to use after years of dereliction. At this time there were over 170 locos present and the old Barry Railway works near the station was also in use for storage. The photos above and below show some of the locos stored in the lower yard. Most of the locos present were from the Western Region although Southern, B.R. standard and Midland types were also well represented.
