Remarks & Notes 
The reason why Britain has such a vibrant preservation scene. Five years after the end of steam on British Railways, withdrawn locos still stretch into the far distance at Dai Woodham's scrapyard in South Wales. Thanks to a continuing supply of wagons for scrapping there was plenty of work without the need to cut the locos, and a total of 213 were saved for preservation. R.I.P. Dai, the preservation world is forever in your debt.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
