About Barry Rail Centre

Barry Rail Centre is a 100+ acre site connected to the Vale of Glamorgan mainline in Barry. It has track stretching between Barry Waterfront and Barry Island, and for large sections runs immediately adjacent to the mainline. This proximity provides an excellent location for testing and training, but with far more scope for controlling activities, away from the restrictions required on the mainline.

Barry Rail Centre has extensive safe covered storage and workshop facilities at its Main Depot, New Works Building, Plymouth Road Engine Shed and Hood Road Shed. It also has impressive bookable meeting facilities at its offices at the restored Station Buildings on Barry Island, and further facilities at its Hood Road Engine Shed, which are also connected to its running line. Further detailed technical specifications on the railway can be provided upon request.
