Edge Hill Marshalling Yards

Does anyone have a layout diagram of the Edge Hill complex of yards showing the location of the various mechanical signal boxes before the 'colour light' invasion of the West Coast modernisation plan from the late 1950s onward.
I particularly need to identify the various signal boxes by number (e.g. Edge Hill No.11) so that I can relate the plan to the 1937 LMSR Appendix.
Thanks.

I thought I might have something on my 'sidestrip' diagrams, but the relevant sheet directs me to an enlargement which is missing.

Our database notes the following at the National Archives:
RAIL410/1428 Report on the Gridirons c.1909
RAIL1057/2796 Maps, diagrams and description of usage of Edge Hill Gridirons (4 pieces) 1884-1900

Regards

Andy

Thank you Andy.
I was hoping to avoid a trip to Kew if anyone has a suitable diagram.

I believe I have enough to make a diagram at home. There is a SRS book of signalling diagrams for this area (vol 9), and the Godfrey maps put together should give a good idea of what is and was there.

I did print out an extended photocopy of these plans shortly before I retired, but am not sure where it is at present.
Unfortunately, I am in Vienna today, and won't be back in the UK until next Wednesday a the earliest. Give me a day or two and send me a reminder if I haven't found them by then; I'll need a nudge to get back into harness.

Best wishes
