The Carriage & Wagon Department is effectively split in to two parts, with the three full time staff, and volunteers, based in the Paint Shop in Bewdley goods yard, focusing almost exclusively on carriages, while the majority of wagon repairs and restorations are carried out by the Wagon Department in the Goods Shed.

They also maintain the resident Ruston and Hornsby 165hp Diesel Shunter 319290 which is used for shunting duties in the yard and for shuttling rolling stock under restoration between Bewdley and Kidderminster.

Several carriage groups also operate here. These include the Great Western (SVR) Association, the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society Charitable Trust's LNER Group and the DMU group.

The 4150 Fund are actively restoring their GWR Large Prairie 4150, whilst The 2857 Society, The 15xx Pannier Trust, Warwickshire Industrial Locomotive Preservation Group and The Erlestoke Manor Fund also have a presence here.
