In January 2015 SSR embarked on a major project to construct a 650m2 display shed to enable some of our rolling stock to be displayed in a purpose built facility. With the perimeter and centre line foundations now completed the shed framework has started to go up.
1st March 2014 - THE SHED ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED!These are exciting times for RVP, and a short intense burst of activity in the next few weeks should give us much better control over our own future. Planning permission is in place, building regulations have been approved and the order for the foundation work has been placed.
To be able to get all the restored and unrestored vehicles undercover will enable us to make inroads into the renovation of the vehicles that still await their turn in the restoration queue, while ensuring that those already restored do not deteriorate due to being out in the open at the perils of the British elements. RVP has one of the most historic collections of LNER vehicles; both Beavertails from the 1937 "Coronation" train, the only surviving coach built for the "Flying Scotsman" train of 1924, the only restored six wheeled Thompson brake coach, the sole surviving LNER bogie CCT and not forgetting the only surviving LNER Travelling Post Office set amongst others. RVP Ltd was initially formed in 1968 to preserve interesting items of railway rolling stock for use on a steam railway. Since gaining charitable status we have worked to a clear aim of restoration and operation of railway rolling stock of historical interest, especially travelling post office vehicles (and associated items). Our collection currently consists of a total of 21 vehicles (15 directly owned, and the remainder under written long term loan agreements). This is a problem that has long been foreseen; our restored vehicles are kept on open sidings. Unfortunately (from a planning perspective) the Great Central Railway runs through open countryside, with limited opportunity for siting of large carriage sheds. After a long period of discussion with the planning authority and other interested parties, RVP and the GCR identified a site for a shed within existing railway land, and with minimal impact on its surroundings.
We need around ?17,000 to be raised in the next few months to allow for rapid completion of the building once it is in place.
We consider this to be a realistic sum to raise, but we really do need the help of all GCR supporters to get this project swiftly completed to the benefit of the entire railway.
Rapid completion of the shed will immediately ease the maintenance workload and allow us to more rapidly restore the remainder of our collection. The project is essential to RVP and will ensure the long term operation of historic stock on the GCR - please support us at this critical time! If you donate via Paypal and are a UK tax payer could you also please fill in the gift aid form and send that to us, we can then reclaim the tax (scanned signed copies are fine) to Shed Appeal, (link to form below). Earthworks commenced in January and the foundations were laid in Febuary and over the winter months the site was tidied and the earthworks for the track approaches were completed. Rapid progress has already been made and in only three days around a quarter of the framework is already in position.The steel erectors expect to have finished the framework by 6th June, we will then have a three week pause while the GCR start preparing the trackwork and we complete the foundations.
They now intend to start on site next Tuesday (20th), although they will not be able to start in earnest until the following day (once the final foundation concrete has gone in). The foundations are due to be installed in March and be should be completed in April, subject to the weather.


Now is the time to make this the last winter that these historic vehicles have to endure the elements.
The collection and location evolved over time; we moved to the Great Central Railway (Loughborough) in 1981, and gained charitable status in 2002.
All of our vehicles (with one exception) are located on the Great Central Railway (Loughborough to Leicester). As the majority are wooden bodied the British weather dictates that they require attention every 2-3 years. RVP took a lease on an adjacent disused branch line (the Mountsorrel Railway) in 2005, with the intention of providing covered accommodation there. We are a successful specialist group working in partnership with an established (and rapidly developing) major preserved railway. This is to the rear of Swithland sidings; the location of the restored and fully operational four-track section of main line.
The reduction in maintenance requirement will also ensure those vehicles we have restored will be available for use more often, thus increasing the opportunities for the public to see and use them.
The shed construction got underway in October with completion of the building shell scheduled for November with the first items of rolling stock being moved in shortly after. They intend to erect the framework, starting from the south end (where the concrete foundations are ready) and working north over the following few weeks.A site meeting will take place next Tuesday as there are various activities that we need to co-ordinate – there is still the door threshold to be cast (which requires the track to be in place, which can’t go in until the shed frame is up), and there is the blockwork down the shed sides to go in – the builder will do this as the shed frame is erected. No internal cladding (except of boundary side wall where this is a building regulation requirement). The response to the latest appeal in the Great Central Railway’s "Main Line" magazine was superb and has raised around ?10,000. RVP has always been an entirely volunteer run organisation, and the vast majority of our work is carried out by volunteers. To date we have been able to maintain our restored vehicles, while also making progress with long term restoration.
The solution is to provide covered storage accommodation; the bodywork maintenance interval will then be increased to at least 10 years (with a far easier ability to defer non-urgent work, without risk of rapid deterioration). While the restoration of the branch line itself has become a hugely successful community project, we were unable to secure planning permission for buildings on it.
However, the need to secure the future of our collection by providing covered accommodation is now becoming urgent.
When completed it will become the normal stabling point for our restored vehicles; the Beavertail, the two completed Gresley teak coaches, the LNER TPO set ( 2 vehicles), Motorail Van, and six wheeled brake (BZ). In time this will become a great asset for the railway enabling more of our valuable historic rolling stock to be stored under cover. This along with other donations means that we are now within ?20,000 of being able to place the order for the shed. Despite increasing our pool of volunteers, and significantly increasing our activity rate, we are now reaching the point where vehicle maintenance requires the majority of our volunteer's time.


Built with a low roof and clad in a neutral colour, the shed will be largely hidden from view (from the railway side, behind the existing four sidings of Swithland yard, and behind a tree and hedge screen from the site boundary). This is to keep the construction cost to a minimum and get our collection under cover as quickly as possible. If we can raise this money before the foundations are completed then the shed could be built and ready for occupation by the summer - we really do need every donation to be able to get the job done! The shed will be for vehicle storage only; restoration and maintenance work will continue to be carried out at Rothley.
These are the teak carriages stored on open sidings at Rothley and Swithland, which do not currently present the best appearance to GCR visitors passing on trains. There will be plenty of scope for improving the shed over time, and the appeal is likely to remain open to allow us to do so.THE TRACKWORK – As part of the agreement with the GCR, they will provide the trackwork into the shed. However they include some of the most historically significant coaches in the UK, and RVP has the skills and parts necessary to restore them all in due course. This is currently being designed and it is likely that this initially will connect the three roads nearest to the GCR main line to the rest of Swithland yard.
In the meantime the need to get them out of the weather is urgent and, by placing them out of sight in the shed, the consequent improvement of the railways overall appearance will be an immediate additional benefit.
The fourth road (on the boundary) is likely to be isolated track for the time being (there are some costly constraints on the access to this road to be completed at a later date). Some space will remain in the shed to be allocated to other vehicles needing short term storage (for example vehicles from the mark 1 TPO set or other GCR based vehicles).
We are grateful to the GCR for their assistance here.SHED OPERATION – The shed is essentially for storage. Under the terms of the planning consent we are able to do light maintenance work there (e.g. Initially one road will have our serviceable passenger coaches on it (the teak pigeon van, Gresley RB, and Beavertail); these will continue to be used by the GCR as now, but will be stored at the shed between periods of use. Further space will hold the LNER TPO set (sorter, tender, BZ, and motorail van) – these remain basically serviceable and can be moved to Quorn (or elsewhere) for display as required. We then have our “works in progress” – vehicles 23981 9116 and the Ambulance Van currently, which can reside in the shed during pauses in their restoration. This will make a massive difference in being able to put partly restored vehicles under cover when other priorities mean space is needed at Rothley. However the possibility remains of limited access during those events when the GCR open Swithland yard, and we can, of course, arrange access for anyone particularly interested in any of our vehicles (this being much easier to do with the vehicles stabled in a relatively safe location as opposed to any one of a number of sidings on the GCR).13th January 2014 - 'A shed full of coaches'Railway Vehicle Preservations are getting closer to the day that it can reported that "All our historic wooden bodied coaches are under cover". We "only" need to raise another ?20,000 within the next few months to be able to place the order for the shed, to be built at Swithland Sidings on the Great Central Railway.
