DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION:
This is the incredible story of how more than 200 former British Railways steam locomotives have survived nearly 20 years after the last was sold for scrap. Dai Woodham's legendary scrapyard at Barry in South Wales has become a mecca for thousands of railway enthusiasts from all over the world.
Not only is this the story of the locomotives but the people that have become involved with projects to save them. A year-by-year diary records the arrival and departure of the engines and includes reports on the progress of those undergoing restoration.
All the surviving locomotives are illustrated with photographs showing them languishing in the yard, in transit - both by rail and road, under restoration and, where it has been achieved, once again in working order. Many have since become very famous engines, working regularly today on the very tracks from which they were banished all those years ago - and beyond, to territory where they were rarely, if ever, seen in their previous operational days.
