History

By autumn 2011 the SVRSevern Valley Railway's Motive Power Department consisted of two main sections, 'Mechanical' and 'Boiler', with the latter having a separate Boiler Shop Foreman and Boiler Contract Foreman.[1] At the beginning of 2012 the department was renamed Severn Valley Railway Engineering Services, with the Boiler section overseeing both internal and contract work under a single Boiler Shop Manager.[2]

In December 2017 it was reorganised under an Engineering Services Works Manager and an Engineering Services Carriage and Wagon Manager, both reporting to the General Manager. They are supported by a Engineering Advisory Group under the SVRSevern Valley Railway Management Advisory Groups structure, "containing representation from the Board and Volunteers to provide support to the management by combining the wide experience of our volunteer and paid workforce with the objective of improving the performance and corporate governance of the Railway."
