Remember Barry?

A new “monorail” page – “Remember Barry?” The great scrapyard contained around 300 locos at its peak; by the time of this visit in August 1983, perhaps 70 remained – the others gone to preservation, and a good few restored to full working order. Where would our preserved lines be now, if Dai Woodham had cut them up like his colleagues at Cashmores? – And what a shame the yard hadn’t been in the north-east of England, or Scotland…. Ex-GWR, SR and LMS locos by the dozen, and one solitary ex-LNER locomotive, B1 61264
