5227 - 5205 Class

2-8-0T No 5227 arrived at the railway centre in August 2013, after being used as a source of parts for the project to build the 47xx 2-8-0 No 4709. The locomotive is at present to be displayed in its current condition as a lasting reminder of what things were like in Barry scrapyard and the challenges faced by the preservation movement.
