The Barry Scrapyard Story
The legendary yard of Woodham Bros. at Barry Glamorgan has truly a remarkable story. It started in 1959 with the arrival of locomotives from Swindon Works for breaking up and until 1968, over 300 would assemble from all over Britain. But not all were scrapped - indeed, 213 lingered on and were all eventually purchased by the preservation movement.
