West Midlands Sugar Co (later British Sugar Corporation) (BSCBritish Steel Corporation, or British Sugar Corporation) operated a factory from 1925 to 1982 at Foley Park, producing sugar from beet. It involved use of shunters and other rolling stock, some of which were acquired by the SVRSevern Valley Railway.
A total of open 14 wagons were donated to the SVRSevern Valley Railway by BSCBritish Steel Corporation, or British Sugar Corporation, 10 in June 1969 and 4 in May 1971 as detailed below. The 1998 Stock Book stated that all but 4 of these had been cut up, however a fifth was still in existence in 2012. '*' denotes registration numbers and dates.
