More from my archives. The steam engines have been in Barry for at least 40 years, they were sent to a Barry scrapyard in the 60's but like many others they survived the torch. Most of the steam engines currently running in the UK came from Woodhams scrapyard. These images are of the last ones to leave. The diesel engine was running when I visited in June.
All hand held shots without flash

Good shots both, Ken. The large version is a must for the detail.

tryied to crop the roof and replace it with something else? The overexposed windows are somewhat distracting.. or at least that's what I think... Great photo, great detail...deserves many clicks...

When I was very much younger, I remember going to Barry on a trip with my parents in a coach.
I especially remember climbing into engines that had very recently been parked, the fires were still alight allbeit very low. As I recall the smell and sight was great. These shots bring back good memories, like running up the hill on the way to school and looking over the bridge just as the train was leaving the station, and getting all smokey and dirty before school. Great.

Super set of pics. Very nostalgic.
A friend of mine filmed the last steam engine to be rebuilt at Swindon Railway works. Besides the 16mm film he and his Dad and brother took about 2000 slides of the work in progress.
These pics of yours are an important record.
