76084 arrived at Woodham Brothers scrapyard in Barry, South Wales in mid 1968 having taken some time to make the journey south from Wigan with other members of the class. One saving grace was that she remained coupled to her tender throughout the 14 years 4 months she languished at Barry.
Early in 76084's stay the words 'RESERVED ELR' were painted on at least the Fireman's cabside. ELR is presumably East Lancashire Railway. Nothing came of this and in October 1974 5 members of the Hallamshire Railway Preservation Society having made arrangement to preserve 76084 painted her in red lead primer. This preservation attempt sadly came to naught but 76084 stood out from the remaining locomotives with her distinctive colour.
Eventually, as much effort was being made to find homes for all the Barry locomotives in the early 1980's Phil Rollin was persuaded to part with some cash and take her to his back garden in Nottinghamshire.
Our photos show 76084 at the various stages of her stay in South Wales right up to her transport away.
76084 was the 143rd locomotive to leave Barry (and the 141st to steam after rescue from the yard).
