Goods wagons on the SVRSevern Valley Railway

There are over one hundred goods wagons based on the SVRSevern Valley Railway, dating from the 1880s to the 1980s, with examples from all four post-grouping railways, plus many pre-grouping, private owner and BRBritish Rail or British Railways wagons.
Most are preserved for historical interest, yet some, such as ballast or rail wagons, can also perform a useful function on the railway.
While most wagons are in long term storage awaiting restoration or on static display at a fixed location, they are, by their nature, mobile, so any reference to current location is potentially inaccurate or out of date. Most of the wagons used in the Demonstration Goods Train are stored at Bewdley.
Goods wagons are currently all stored in the open. A scheme to build a storage shed at Bewdley in the cutting of the former Stourport Line proved abortive. More recently a group was formed, known as the Wagon Review Group to try to revitalise this important project to improve display and restoration facilities and to provide much needed cover for at least part of the wagon fleet
