45699 Galatea looking very woebegone in Barry scrapyard in 1975. Compared with Bill Jamieson's picture five years earlier the centre driving wheels have been cut through and the chimney has disappeared. The loco left the yard in 1980 to Tyseley, originally as a source of spares, but in 2002 went to West Coast Railways - and the rest is preservation history See image 47860. The NBL Type 2 buffered up to 45699 is widely reported as D6122, but one cab displayed D6121 as seen here leading to disputes about identity.
