I believe it was a wagon in the Tenbury siding, not sure which one though.

A FIRE that was "maliciously" started spread from an embankment in Bewdley to a Severn Valley Railway carriage yesterday.

Firefighters from Bewdley attended the scene at 4.20pm yesterday after the blaze, started on an embankment in Northwood Lane, spread to an unused SVR carriage.

The carriage was parked up at the time and there were no injuries or evacuations.

A Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "The fire is believed to be malicious. We have informed the Severn Valley Railway and West Mercia Police."

Firefighters used one hose reel to extinguish the fire and left the scene at 5.30pm

yes - I saw that in the Kidder paper; remembering that CARRIAGES are what we use to carry PEOPLE, I hope nobody thinks that they would be expected to ride in it if they visit the railway!

probably some idiot thinking it was ok for the steam loco to propel the carriages right into the carriage shed.

BS3 was scheduled to be propelled by train engine to CS3. The loco does need to be just in the shed or you cant close the doors on the stored set. The alarm was supposed to allow this

The alarm obviously doesn't though!! Until this has been fixed, sounds like we need the 08 to do the last part of the shunt! Only a problem with a loco tender-first out of Bridgnorth, as with chimney-first, it's only the tender that goes into the shed. Or use a barrier vehicle of some sort, which would take a good bit longer to do the shunt.

I think it is possible to temporary disable the alarm, certain last week the set for CS3 had to be shunted from the shed and it was well inside as it was a 6 coach train. The 08 wasn't wanting to work that morning so the train engine shunted it, 1501 I think it was.

It is the Funds GWR 39860 Container Wagon.
It is coupled to the Funds GWR 14428 2-Plank Open Signal Wagon.
We do not own the container which appears to have been torched.
