Goods Wagons

GWRGreat Western Railway 5 plank Open Goods Wagon 25190 was built at Swindon in 1904 as Lot 445 to Diagram O4. It is of type OPEN A, signifying that it was fitted with a sheet support (which it no longer has), but did not have vacuum brakes. It was reconstructed in 1937.

25190 arrived on the SVRSevern Valley Railway on 16 December 1986[1] from the British Waterways Board’s Sharpness Docks, accompanied by another similar wagon number 13260. The latter was accepted on the understanding that it was unsuitable for restoration and would be dismantled to provide spare parts.[2]. 25190 was restored during 1987 before entering service incorporating drawhooks salvaged from 13260.[3] It received a further overhaul in 2008.[4] It is owned by The GWR 813 Preservation Fund.
