The Barry 10 were a collection of scrapyard locomotives that were removed from Woodham Brothers in 1990 when Dai Woodham retired; basically, they were the ones which were left, unsold, at that date.
They were then taken on by the Vale of Glamorgan Council. For the next 20 years the locomotives were stored in scrapyard condition, although several were bought. All the remaining locomotives were rusting hulks, stored, and not publicly viewable.
The Barry Ten were under the management and ownership of Cambrian Transport, who publicly announced on 4 May 2010, various plans for the different engines (see below).
