9 is a GWR
4-wheel Riding and Dormitory Van. In service these ran paired with 6-wheel Tool vans such as GWR 66
, and were stationed at GWR
loco sheds. The Tool and Riding Van pairs would be required to attend mishaps as fast as possible and were vacuum-braked to allow running at near express speeds.
9 was built at Swindon in 1912. It arrived on the SVR from Danygraig, Swansea on 2 May 1972, and is situated in Bewdley Down Yard where it is used as a store by The 4150 Fund.
