A rather sorry looking heavily stripped and rusted Churchward 2-8-0 no 2861 stands in a siding running along the east side of the former 88C Barry Shed in September 2012. The locomotive had been withdrawn from Severn Tunnel Junction by BR almost 50 years earlier. The loco was subsequently moved to Llangollen and the boiler and cylinders removed for use on other rebuild and new build projects. The frames were then cut and disposed of, in mid 2014, as it was deemed it would be too expensive to ever restore the loco to running order again.
