Hi all,
My stepfather worked at Rosegrove shed after coming to England after the war from Germany, later moving on to Townley signal box after its closure, seeing the conversion from lever operation to pushbuttons.

This morning i bought a postcard showing it at its height with locos on shed ....



I would like to model a section of Rosegrove sheds as a shunting yard in his memory and keep the layout with a local theme, as it is only about two miles away from me ..... of course it has all gone now leaving a huge open space

Where is the best place to download a track plan for it and start planning my yard ?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
