A typical train consists of a barrier wagon, 11 coaches and a guards van, and is able to accommodate approximately 65 passengers. The open carriages are mainly used for day to day running. Also tucked away in the carriage shed is a set of enclosed carriages which are brought out for an airing on special occasions. Another feature that may be seen at weekends is the occasional goods train. Amongst the trucks are side-tipping skip wagons. These were made when the railway was first built and have proved their worth by being used to move bulky items such as spoil from earthworks, ballast and concrete. As each can carry about six cubic feet of material, this represents a useful amount when marshalled into one train. A fully insulated ice cream van was constructed and painted in the manufacturer's colour scheme complete with logo. Another very necessary item is the weed killing wagon. A systemic preparation which is eco-friendly to wild life is used at Moors Valley Railway.
