The Charitable Trust is the SVR's 'owner of last resort', "''...ensuring that various locomotives, coaches and wagons that have been lovingly restored over many years by SVR volunteers can remain at the Railway, in perpetuity. As the members of the many preservation groups inevitably age and their numbers dwindle, items of rolling stock can be donated to the Charitable Trust, in order to be absolutely certain they will remain at the Railway for the long-term.''"<ref>[ Statement from Director of Development, November 2016 on SVR Live]</ref>
A full list of all the rolling stock owned by the Trust can be found [[:Category:Rolling stock owned by The SVR Charitable Trust | here]].
