My one and only visit to Woodham's scrapyard at Barry, during 1985, was an experience which as many others who
made that 'pilgrimage' will have found was to say the least a sight to which words cannot satisfactorily express.

 I think the majority of people on their arrival would stand and be entranced by what lay before them.

 The day I went I didn't see another soul in the yard, it was all 'mine' for 3 or 4 hours.

 Most of the locomotives had moved on and a lot had already been restored by the time I went but the feelings and thoughts
must have been very similar for all 'pilgrims' and potential purchasers alike, and now even 'Barry scrapyard' itself is a memory.

It is not possible to quantify the value, to our railway history, of the contribution of the Barry phenomenon.

All those people who have expended much blood, sweat, tears, time and 'Money' to create and enable us, our children and children's children
 to enjoy what many would have thought was an impossible dream.

 Pockets of our steam railway history throughout the land and beyond, and the benefit of the sights depicted on the photographs below.

 To all those whose efforts we acknowledge - we salute you !

The two shots below show Hughes - Fowler LMS "Crab" No. 42859 ready to be rescued. Sadly the engine is now in serious
danger of finally being cut - up, due to a legal dispute between it's owner, James Arkell, and a company claiming ownership of the former
RAF Binbrook airfield in Lincolnshire, where it has been stored since March 1995.
The engine has never steamed since leaving Barry and it now looks as though it never will.
