The Carriage Repair Works is split across two sites. The most conspicuous is the former GWRGreat Western Railway goods shed at Kidderminster, aka North Star Works. The SVRSevern Valley Railway acquired this shed in 1985, the year after Kidderminster opened, when it was put up for sale by the former occupants Pickfords Removals.
Much work also takes place at Bewdley which generally carries out the heavier bodywork repair work. The lighter bodywork repairs and bogie overhauls take place at Kidderminster. Carriage restoration from derelict condition by groups including the GW(SVR)A and the Charitable Trust also takes place at Bewdley. Both Repair Works are closed to the public, except during the Members & Shareholders Weekend and Peep Behind the Scenes.
