Barry Island Glamorgan South Wales 12th October 1968

Barry Island  Glamorgan South Wales 12th October 1968
Southern S15 4-6-0 30841 is seen in the right background while Great Western Hall Class 4-6-0 4979 Wooton Hall is at a lower level back-to-back with another Hall 4942 Maindy Hall. A rail-mounted crane is behind the S15.

4979 was built at Swindon in 1930 and withdrawn by British Railways from Oxford shed in 1963. It had been at Woodham's for 4 years when I took this and stayed a further 18 years before purchase into preservation. Still not restored it is currently located at the Ribble Steam Railway in Preston.
