BarryWoodham Brothers Scrapyard, Barry, South Wales. The source of many locomotives now in preservation. Railway Carriage Trust was formed in 2009 to restore and operate former Barry Railway Carriage 163 on the Severn Valley Railway. 163 itself was rescued in 1992 and was in private ownership before its transfer to the newly-formed Trust.

The Trust is located at Hampton Loade station, where they have a sales van and workshop base.

Until 2018 it was a membership body by subscription. It then became a supporters' organisation with no membership, due to the membership secretary departing for other projects and no replacement being forthcoming.[1]. It publishes an annual newsletter 'The BarryWoodham Brothers Scrapyard, Barry, South Wales. The source of many locomotives now in preservation. Octopus'. The Trust is "working towards the aim of becoming a Charity and have made several steps towards this goal."
