    Hi,

    I've recently been updating some of the older records in my Locos database, but not having much luck with the items at Barry Tourist Railway. Their own website has no stock pages (and the latest News is apparently 2017) and my mate Google has not been able to find anything recent about the following locomotives. :(

    0-6-0ST 2 Pontyberem
    GWR 4500 4575 2-6-2T 5539
    GWR 5600 0-6-2T 6686
    4wVBGT 7 Susan
    BR 9F 2-10-0 92245
    BR 08 0-6-0DE D3658 08503
    BR 20 Bo-Bo D8128 20228
    BR 73 Bo-Bo E6025 73118

    If anyone can update me on the current condition (and location if they have left Barry) that would be much appreciated.

    If you go onto Facebook, and search for Barry tourist railway or GWR 56xx No. 6686 restoration project then you might be able to find out some more information. Cheers

    Thank you. I have had a look at Facebook but not much info on there either.

    Sadly, BTR is one of the few heritage railways that doesn't seem to have much of a web presence. Even their 'Train Services' page seems to still be showing last years dates. :(

    Small prairie 5539 is a contract restoration job. The boiler is currently under overhaul at Llangollen.
