***Hi
I'm not sure but Alan Godfrey maps is a great source of data for such things: From their online info they do have an OS map showing it in detail as below:

"The Coventry South map continues coverage south of Coventry and is far less built up. The railway runs across the map while the Leamington branch runs south. Features include Whitley Common, Whitley Coal Wharf, engine shed (at Leamington Jct), St James church Stivichall. Directory entries P-Z are also included, plus a directory for the tiny village (population 81) of Stivichall."

Their URL for this page is http://www.alangodfreymaps.co.uk/coventry.htm. The map detail is always great and their service is pretty good so it may be worth getting hold of the relavant map which will clearly show the shed and any associated railway track, so providing a pretty definitive answer.

Regards

You could always try and find a copy of Bolger's loco sheds - Midland region. I think it's out of print but copies do turn up at exhibitions and second hand book shops fairly frequently.

Hope this helps.

Regards
