HMA 355798

355798 was the culmination of the fundraising efforts of The MGR Appeal and became the first wagon preserved by the Group.


The wagon was bought from DB Schenker and was acquired from Immingham TMD.


It currently resides at The Chasewater Railway


The wagon is in a good state of repair both mechanically and cosmetically

HAA 354456

Built at Shildon Wagon Works in 1968, it spent its working life in the Scottish coal fields until it ran in to trouble at Dalmellington in 1988 was badly derailed.

For 354456 at least, a twist of fate saw the wagons dealt with in 2004 and 354456 was donated to the Doon Valley Railway, the other five victims sadly disposed of.

The NWPG acquired the wagon from the Doon Valley Railway in March 2020 and our aim is to restore the wagon, with extensive work required, to its former glory.

HAA 354966

354966 was bought by Mr Goodman of Moveright International Ltd and is on permanent loan to the group.



The wagon was bought from DB Schenker and was acquired from Onllwyn washery.

The wagon is in good cosmetic order but requires some spare parts for its repairs...

VCA 200406

VCA Van 200406, latterly ZRA 024988 internal user at Derby

This wagon was one of 1400, built between 1969 and 1978 and were BR's first general-purpose air-braked vans., Their main use being on the new Air-Braked Network (later Speedlink) services.

Transfers to departmental use commenced in the early 1980s. Most affected was the VCA fleet and this wagon was one of those examples

This wagon is owned by a group member and is on permanent loan to the group.

TEA 87867

87867 was the result of the crowdfunder appeal that the NWPG ran in November 2015 and is the group's 4th wagon.


The wagon was bought from Thames Oilport at Coryton Oil Refinery


It is in strategic storage at Sutton Coldfield awaiting road movement to a suitable site.


The wagon will be cosmetically restored and purged. Its future use could be as a water bowser.

MGR Daleks

The Daleks are the automatic door opening/closing equipment located on the approach to and from the bunker in the power station


The Daleks were bought from Hope Construction Materials and acquired from Hope Cement Works, Edale.


They currently reside at Barrow Hill.


The Daleks are in need of some TLC and will be assessed in the near future.


353224 was purchased from DB Cargo in March 2017 and transported to Chasewater in July 2017


This is a unique prototype conversion of an MGR hopper into a CDA china clay hopper


The wagon currently resides at Chasewater Railway

The plan for this wagon is to remove the hopper lids, ladder and electric box to enable intimate restoration.

The future...

The future of this group depends on YOU!


Our efforts so far is all down to the generous donations and contributions from the public, during and after the MGR Appeal.
