I hope it will not be too long before some of these wagons can be put under cover.

Hello,
What do you suggest we do about undercover accommodation for wagons?
There is not enough cover for
Locomotives
Coaches
Wagons are not exactly iconic nor do they earn much revenue......

Everybody knows the price of......
Not the value..........

There's a proposal for a wagon storage shed on the Foley Park sidings site.
It's just a proposal at the moment, not a plan, as it will depend on external funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, but the site has been cleared of undergrowth and surveyed.

It is presumed that you are acting as Devil's Advocate but, if not, you will see that Graham has answered your question.

Such a feature would be fantastic to have and I hope it happens in the future, but good security will presumably be needed in that particular location. Obviously large scale occupancy of the sugar beet site as is happening will offset the risk.

It's good to see the conflat under repair at Bewdley. The container that was on it - burnt out last year - was used by SVR Wolverhampton branch when converting 80776. When that was finished the container was put onto it using the Western Funds iron fairy. (That was when I put my foot through the floor of the conflat) It was then used as a store at Arley for their Christmas lights and decorations until moved down to Bewdley.

Peter

Was the container that was burnt out the one in this picture on the SVR Wiki?

Yea, that is the one.

It was originally aquired by Ray Plackett and used by the P.Way, then donated to Wolverhampton Branch for use during the conversion of 80776. When that conversion was complete the conflat and container were dispatched to Arley where they were used for storage of the Christmas equipment.
Eventually it was sent to Bewdley and was set on fire whilst stored on the Northwood siding.

Hello,
Possibly,
Will be anything to get a greater interest in the wagons and coaches on the SVR.
Read pages and pages about Flying ******* Scotsman.
10 million?


Enough to cover and restore nearly all the heritage in the UK.

450 quid a ticket?


Timber for an Open.

Need I go on?


And yes I put a lot of effort,time and money into looking after wagons and coaches.

102691 is just about done now, it just needs a second coat on some of the signwriting.
These are from last weekend.





Today was an indoor job day, so 55577 got some new timber on the verandah end.



And some welding repairs to the sandbox.

GWR Open A Goods Wagon 13154. Olly on the Nat Pres thread has been reporting on making new brake pins for some time now, the first set made were used for another wagon (102691?). He recently reported it had moved for the work to start and the team had to remove one buffer with the application of a little heat to get the nuts to shift. New brake hangers are currently in the process of being fabricated.

Kevin Moseley on ‎Unofficial Severn Valley Railway Facebook group has also posted:

What first seemed like just a quick service and a lick of paint to make a presentable job of this wagon died the moment we dropped the doors. Oh dear I think that there is months of work here.!!

Graham can no doubt add more

The verandah end on 55577 is now reassembled, the verandah doors have been repaired and work has started on repairing the cabin door frame.







There's a lot of bolts and rivets in the way.



Which means a lot of notching out.



13154 has had all the body and part of the underframe top coated and a start has been made on the signwriting.

Slightly O/T Kenny Felstead on the closed Unofficial FB site has an image of 1501 shunting a short rake of wagons through Bewdley on a positioning move for the 40s event.

13154's floor is now complete. We've run out of good used floor boards, so it's got new ones in the middle.
Our most recently outshopped wagon, 1026891, stands alongside.



We had a visit from the junior club recently and they did some good work on the Conflat wagon.



55577 has been having the rot cut out and new sections let in.

Verandah door.





Cabin door frame and bottom stringer.



Guard's ducket pillars.
