Product Description

The legendary train yard of Woodham Brothers at Barry, South Glamorgan, England, tells a truly remarkable story. The locomotive tale started in 1959 with the arrival of train engines from Swindon Works to be scrapped. Up to 1968 over 300 engines would follow from all parts of Britain. But not all were broken up, indeed 213 lingered on and were eventually repurchased by the railroad preservation movement.

This heralded of of the most important and influential aspects of British railway preservation: The so-called "graveyard of steam" at Barry, which has contributed half of the standard guage preserved steam fleet, and moreover has brought about the "preservation boom" of the past two decades.

This video documentary, imported from England, tells the fascinating story of Woodhams Yard; how it all began; why the locomotives were kept so long and how they were all bought and moved to new homes around Britain. An exclusive interview with Dai Woodham and professional archive film of the yard, together with preservationist's experiences in rebuilding a Barry locomotive, provide an inside into this incredible phenomenon.
