The SVRSevern Valley Railway’s 3 Flat ED wagons, 906811, 906825 and 906830, were bought from BRBritish Rail or British Railways by Universal Pictures and arrived on the SVRSevern Valley Railway in July 1975, being used as mock carriages in the film The Seven-Per-Cent Solution. The Flat ED wagons are owned by SVR(H).
The Railway Heritage Register Wagon Survey suggests that the SVRSevern Valley Railway’s three Flat EDs are the only surviving examples of the 32 originally built. A more detailed history of the three wagons may be found under 906811.
