Barry scrapyard loco’s then and now. A small selection of the 213 locomotives saved from the Woodham brothers scrapyard in Barry South Wales. The video shows a picture of the loco during its stay in Barry followed by a video of the loco now back in steam and running.
When these groups of people went to the Barry scrap yard to buy these engines some didn’t have enough money to do so. They asked the owner to keep for them until they did, sometimes it took years to do so. This was all by verbal agreement and nothing was ever written down
There is a lot more information on the history of Woodham Brothers at http://www.greatwestern.org.uk/barry1.htm
