Woodham Brothers Ltd is a trading business, based mainly around activities and premises located within Barry Docks, in Barry, South Wales. It is noted globally for its 1960s activity as a scrapyard (hence its colloquial name of Barry Scrapyard), where 297 withdrawn British Railways steam locomotives were sent, from which 213 were rescued for the developing railway preservation movement.
Amidst the long lines of steam locomotives at the Barry Scrapyard, 48305 was painted with the words ‘Please don’t let me die’ on the front of the boiler. Fortunately, she didn’t. She is now preserved at the Great Central Railway.

Images of Barry Scrapyard Hardcover. I purchased it because I have a pre-nationalisation model railway layout, I'm interested in the late history of steam and because I'm Welsh! Wanted to find out more about the extraordinary Barry Scrapyard and Dai's dealings. I expected a dry read, but one which would give me the facts. I expected background and detail about some of the engines sent to Barry but not much additional relevant information.
