The Wagon Department, based in Bewdley Goods Shed and using GWR 80982 Signal Department Van as a mess room, is an independent part of Bewdley Carriage & Wagon Department, which restores and maintains wagons for use in the Demonstration Goods Train. It was first 'hived off' as a separate department in early 1982[1].

Current projects

As of 2017 current projects are WD 55577 Brake Van inside the goods shed and GWR 39860 'Conflat' Container Wagon outside. Members of the Department also from time-to-time assist The LNER Carriage Group with their restoration of GWR 17410 'Toad' 20T Goods Brake Van.
