Barry Island South Wales July 1968

Barry Island South Wales July 1968 

My mate Barry in Barry! We drove down from Sheffield in his dad's car to see the railway wonder that was Woodham's scrapyard. This was for my first visit and to see 200+ engines lined up was amazing. The fact that most of them survived is even more amazing, not that we could have even imagined that would happen at that time.

Here ex-Southern Bulleid pacifics West Country 34101 Hartland and Merchant Navy 35022 Holland-America Line were alongside an empty line so you could get far enough away to capture a half-decent shot - at least you could if you had a half-decent camera.

34101 is based on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway these days and is under restoration. The latest bulletin : New inner firebox being fabricated. Boiler rebuild in hand. New firebox outer wrapper plates inserted. Frames on stands in repair shop for descaling , painting, re-assembly. All wheels out ready for tyre turning. In theory it should be back in steam during 2018.
