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 were completely different engines altogether.


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.
