GWR 4900 Class 4-6-0 4979 "Wootton Hall" - 22 May 2013

Salvaged from Woodhams' Scrapyard at Barry, 4979 was sold to Fleetwood Locomotive Centre in Lancashire as the 179th departure from Barry in Oct 1986. In 1994 it was purchased by Furness Railway Trust and stored at Lytham Motive Power Museum. In Mar 2007 it was moved to a new storage site at the Appleby Heritage Centre where preventative maintenance is being carried out until it can be fully restored
