Barry Island Glamorgan Wales 13th October 1968

LMS Stanier Jubilee 4-6-0 45699 Galatea is finally on the way to recovery after nearly 45 years of limbo. At the West Coast Railway's Carnforth Open Day in July it was seen under restoration.

 

Built in 1936 it ran in service for 28 years before withdrawal from Shrewsbury shed in 1964. It had only been at Barry for 3 years in 1968 but hung around until 1980 before preservation.
