Goods Wagons

This 7-plank 13 ton capacity tippler wagon was one of 10 donated to the SVRSevern Valley Railway in July 1969 by the British Sugar Corporation at Foley Park. A further four were donated in May 1971, although by 1990 all but 4 had been cut up as beyond economical repair.[1]

The original builder and works number of this wagon are not recorded, although it was registered as number 177686 in 1946 and carried the number B.S.C. 5. It was the first of the 10 that arrived in July 1969 to be restored, for which it was given the fictitious livery of Highley Mining Co No 136.[2]

As of 2018 the wagon is stored adjacent to Kidderminster Railway Museum awaiting overhaul.
