Barclay 0-4-0ST No. 2201 'Victory'

Manufacturer: Andrew Barclay & Son, 1945; Works No. 2201

Previous owner(s): Stewarts & Lloyds Steel Tube Works, Newport, Monmouthshire

Current status: Stored pending overhaul

Notes: Stewarts & Lloyds was an Anglo-Scottish steel company that specialised in producing tubes.  The company's headquarters was at Corby Steelworks, although it also operated various sites throughout Britain, including the Newport and South Wales Tube Co. plant, where 'Victory' worked on the internal railway system.  Named to commemorate the end of the Second World War, the locomotive was eventually acquired by the National Museum of Wales.  It was placed under the custodianship of the Caerphilly Railway Society, which subsequently brought the locomotive to the Gwili Railway.
