1966+ Barry Days
This is the earliest available Barry image. The locomotive is part painted in undercoat by Society members, so the period is mid-late 1970s. DON GILLAM
External painting is now well advanced, late 1970s. Note the next in line locomotive is 34059 "Sir Archibald Sinclair", which also went to the Bluebell Railway. P GIBBS.
The Day we rescued Camelot! Society members pose in front of the low loader before the locomotive departs for Sheffield Park. 1979. S DESMOND.
From 1966 to 1979 Camelot languished at Woodhams' Scrapyard, Barry Island. During this time, the Society was founded, and eventually purchased and removed the locomotive to the Bluebell Railway for restoration. These images show Camelot at Barry, and on the day of rescue.
