92080 is one of four long wheelbase Fruit D Vans on the SVRSevern Valley Railway, built by BRBritish Rail or British Railways at Swindon to Diagram 805 Lot 30383[1] based on a GWRGreat Western Railway design. The Fruit D vans were classified as Non Passenger Carrying Coaching Stock (NPCCS).

92080 was built at Swindon in 1958 and was originally electrically lit with power from an axle driven dynamo and chassis mounted batteries, similar to the system used on passenger coaches. It arrived on the SVRSevern Valley Railway on 19 January 1978, having been bought by the 4150 Fund with the intention of being used for storage of loco spares, and was restored to ENPARTS livery (a code used by GWRGreat Western Railway and BRBritish Rail or British Railways(W) for vans carrying loco part from the Swindon factory to loco sheds).[2]

92080 is used as a stores van for GWR Large Prairie 4150.
