Barry, named after Barry Island, the home of the scrapyard in South Wales where he was rescued, was a potential character for the Railway Series. He was to first appear in the cancelled book, Barry the Rescue Engine - which was initially thought to be the thirty-ninth volume of the Railway Series.

It has since been revealed by Christopher Awdry that the book had been created in the 1980s and the engine similar to Wilbert was a different one altogether.

Basis

According to the newly updated The Railway Series: A Brief History page on the Sodor Island Fansite, Barry is a BR Standard Class 2. Barry is logically a 2MT 2-6-0 instead of a 2MT 2-6-2T as none of the tank engines were sent to the Barry Island Scrapyards.
