G.W.R. 2884 Class 2-8-0 No 3855 in a siding at Bury. This engine is owned by andy Booth who also owns L&Y "A" Class No 1300 [link]
I believe this is his next project.

Am i the only one that thinks "Bury" sounds like an appropriate place to keep derelict railway equipment?

Possibly because it sounds a lot like Barry, that infamous scrap yard? :p

I was thinking more like bury, as in what you do with dead stuff. At least it sounds like these will get the restoration they deserve

Oh wow, another old derelict... bet she has some stories to tell. Pictures like this really make you appreciate the work that must have been done to get engines like this running again.

Heh, i needs a small renovation, what means probably not so small amount of money. But I'm always glad to know that there is a chance for and old loco. In Poland buying anything form PKP (or whatever it is now) is almost impossible due to stupid laws. :cry:
