GWR 2-8-0 2873 looking unloved at Buckfastleigh

On the 19th July 2006 unrestored GWR 2-8-0 2873 is looking very unloved on the South Devon Railway. As there are 15 others of this class it seems unlikely that this one will now be restored, especially as one of the others is also at Buckfastleigh.

In 1988, no. 2873 was the last of 213 locomotives to have been rescued from the scrap yard at Barry. A shame that its end seems only to have been postponed.
