Barry Scrapyard 25 March 1987

A melancholy scene at Dai Woodham's scrapyard at Barry, photographed on 25 March 1987. LMS Class 8F 2-8-0 48173 is marked up for sale to the Bitton Railway 8F Group. In the foreground is GWR 45xx 2-6-2T 5539, with LMS 'Black Five' 4-6-0 44901 just behind. This was in particularly poor condition (note the sections cut out of the smokebox), and although saved from the yard, has still not yet been restored.
