Plan of the approach and layout of Curzon Street station's train shed and its Engine House as seen in 1846

Plan of the approach and layout of Curzon Street station's train shed and its Engine House as seen in 1846. A number of changes has occurred in just a few years. The most obvious being the construction of the Grand Junction Railway's arrival and departure platforms. A tranship shed has been built on the Birmingham Canal with an access siding leading off at right angles from the turntables on the roads leading into the arrival and departure lines. In addition, the arrival of the Birmingham and Gloucester Railway meant that their trains needed to be accommodated too. This was achieved by building a bay platform adjacent to the L & B departure platform.
