The Severn Valley Railway is home to a number of diesel locomotives. These are used for shunting and also to haul certain passenger services. The Railway is also home to a 5-car Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU).

Most of the diesel locomotives are based at the Diesel Depot at Kidderminster. However operational diesel locomotives are also stationed at Bridgnorth and Bewdley.
