Nothing now remains on site to indicate the presence of the former Midland Railway locomotive shed at Bournville. This were situated a little to the south of Bournville Station on the west side of the Birmingham West Suburban Railway.

As these photographs show a giant housing estate now covers the whole of the site.

On a visit to Bournville Locomotive Sheds on 11th August 1957, Gerald Wadley recorded just three locomotives. These were class 4F 0-6-0 No.44575, standard class 9F No.92104 (both from Toton) and class 2F 0-6-0 No.58167 (formerly Midland Railway No.2994) of Saltley.

Both of the site photographs were taken by Andrew Smith on 11th September 2001.
