Hello,
I have for some unfathomable reason decided to compile a SVR Carriage & Wagon Stocklist which I hope to have on line by April 2014.
I will be posting various questions and seeking information and Photos for this ordeal.
I could include the locomotives...I feel links to the various websites/facebook pages would be more informative..
happy to listen and read other opinions.
I will need help when I come to all the SVR plant to be listed.


This is not a GWR 813 Fund project.
Many thanks


NIck
GWR 813 Fund

Any updates on this?

One thing that surprises me about the SVR is that there is no on line complete stock list.

Wikipedia only lists locomotives.

Sharpo's blog lists 60 coaches, but no wagons yet.

I've read mention of a Stock Book, but never seen one for sale. I suspect it would be out of date by now anyway.

Ninth edition, 1998.

It's been said on here for some time that a new edition is in preparation, and I did see (Express Points?) a request for a photo of an item of stock recently, so it's a work in progress.

IMO yes, an online version should be a gimme.

I'm sure other Wikipedians would be delighted were you to add the missing information.

I get the hint, boldford. Wink

The irony is that as I am looking for a list for myself , I am not the best person to write the list for Wikipedia.
But then, I suppose that's how Wikipedia works. If I start with the little I know, hopefully others will add to it.

I recently signed up as a volunteer at Bewdley Wagon Department, although I always seem to have something else on at weekends, so haven't actually done much yet.
I noticed that the Wagon Department is almost the only department on http://svr-vlo.org.uk/ that doesn't have a link to it's own web site, so I did wonder if this was a project I could take on in my own time, compiling a list and creating a web site with regular updates.
I realise that I am new here, so that means I would have to pester other people for information, also, I don't want to tread on anyone's toes if nick813 and haynes_m are already working on this.

Right, I've made a start.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rolling_stock_preserved_on_the_Severn_Valley_Railway#Goods_stock
I got the list from http://www.gwr813.org/stocklist.htm. It's not complete yet and obviously there's all those not owned by the 813 Fund to add too.
I'd like to add a bit of detail, even if it's just "In Service" or "In Storage" and a picture of each one, so I'll have to look in to photo copyrights and credits, or just take the photos myself.

Just had a look at some of my photos & many of the wagons can be seen on my website. Try a search, just enter the wagon number:-

Thanks Sharpo.
Looking through the Wikipedia rules on photo uploads, they are pretty strict on copyright.
It looks like if I was to use your pictures, not only would I need your explicit permission, but you would permanently give up any copyright claims yourself.
Are you sure you're OK with that?
I live locally and regularly cycle around the area. It might be easier if I was to get a Lineside Photographer's Pass and make it my mission to search out every wagon in every siding along the line and photograph it myself.

Graham

Have you tried places like the Manor Fund sales coach, or Paddy Goss's sales stand to see if you can pick up a copy of the stock book?
If you still have problems, PM me and I'll see if I can help via my copy.

Peter

Graham,

Have a go at compiling your own set of photos & any that are proving hard to get, if I've got them, you can use mine.

Had a meal at the Ship on Thursday & made sure I was back at the station to film the freight charter pass through. I counted 16 including the 2 brake vans on the train. (I was going to put "guards vans", then wondered about the apostrophe & where it should go....... you've gotta laff!!)

Thus neatly side-stepping the dilemma whether there would be one or more guards. Wink

Using http://www.ws.vintagecarriagestrust.org/ws/wsearch.asp and putting "Severn Valley" as the present location will give a good overview of all wagons currently on the railway.

The above link is the freight charter last Thursday, passing through Highley. The wagon number are listed within the description, always good to see a train like this.

Thanks for that link, Lench_S, that's exactly what I was looking for, with pictures of almost every one as well.

On the one hand, now I know there is an on line list, it makes it a bit pointless duplicating it.
On the other hand, it took five months since this thread was started for it to come to light and it doesn't show up on a Google search for "SVR stock list" or any similar combination of words, so copying all 163 entries across to Wikipedia should make it more accessible. I'll slowly plod on with doing that, then start adding photos.

I see someone else has made a start on the carriages.
