The Friends of Locomotive 4930 Hagley Hall is a group based on the Severn Valley Railway. It was formed in early 1999 by a number of younger members, with the objective of raising funds to contribute towards the restoration of Ex-GWR 4930 Hagley Hall.[1][2] The locomotive is owned by Severn Valley Railway (Holdings) PLC.

In 2010 the Friends published on their website a letter from Nick Ralls, the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society's General Manager, stating that they would have an equity stake in the locomotive in return for their fundraising. By September 2016 the Friends had raised over £110,000 towards the overhaul.[3]

Initially an independent group, from 2018 the Friends became fully integrated into the SVR Charitable Trust so they can maximise income through Gift Aid. [4]

From time to time the Friends operate a sales stand at galas and special events on the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society.
