Locomotive Sheds

The county had a large number and variety of engine sheds ranging from sheds accommodating a single locomotive to those that had the facilities to carry out extensive repairs and maintenance such as Tyseley on the Great Western Railway and Rugby on the London North Western Railway. In between there were the large sheds of Aston, Monument Lane and Saltley, as well as the small sheds that were linked to them for operational reasons such as Coventry and Warwick (Milverton) shed on the LNWR and Leaminton on the GWR. A number of the sheds listed disappeared many years before the end of steam. One of the earliest to disappear was Curzon Street which only lasted a few years being replaced by Monument Lane when New Street station was built and the site was changed to goods traffic. Another locomotive shed that closed down with very little photographic evidence remaining is Bordesley shed which was replaced by Tyseley shed in the early years of the twentieth century.
