1014Built: 20??4-6-0 - “County of Glamorgan”
 
County of Glamorgan

Shortly before Christmas 2004 agreement was reached with the Vale of Glamorgan Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund for the Great Western Society to acquire the frames of ‘Modified Hall’ 4-6-0 No.7927 ‘Willington Hall’ and the boiler from Stanier 8F 2-8-0 No.48518 to allow the recreation of a Hawksworth ‘County’ 10XX 4-6-0.

The new locomotive will become No.1014 ‘County of Glamorgan’ in recognition of the part played by Dai Woodham and the Barry scrapyard in securing such a rich heritage of preserved locomotives and making such a project possible.
