Synopsis

Barry Railway Drawings includes the drawings of Trefor L Jones and Mike Morton Lloyd, with additional drawings by Richard Evans, and also includes many photographs. Livery information comes from ‘Great Western Way’ by kind permission of Cliff Harris and the Historical Model Railway Society. The drawings are reproduced at a consistent 7mm scale, as they were originally drawn, and includes some locomotives as rebuilt by the GWR. They form an invaluable resource not just for modellers but also for historians who wish to learn more about that fascinating period from 1836 to 1922 when Wales had so many of its own railway companies.

The introduction has returned to original source material to give a history of the Barry Railway, whilst the Appendices give build, renumbering and withdrawal details of all the locomotives owned by the Company, and details of carriages and wagons and their renumbering upon absorption into the GWR in 1922.

For anyone interested in the Barry Railway’s locomotives and rolling stock this is the perfect reference book.
