Made my comment on the previous image, then found my answer here. What a pity.

I hope your memory is better than mine, George....as this may occur again. I visited the Woodham's scrapyard at Barry several times over a 12 year period and eventually photographed most of the 200+ steam locos which were recovered from there.
Either my dad or myself also photographed quite a few of those same locos before they were withdrawn from service and I have also seen many of the named ones running in the preservation era.
Hopefully a few more series of them will appear on IP, ...but not too many as they seem to have limited appeal amongst the members ;-)
