South of the goods shed at Stanningley and at a higher level was a large yard, rail served, which belonged to the Civil Engineer's department. It was considerably longer than the station's platforms, and contained a multitude of large workshops,connected with trackwork components, on-track machinery, building repairs, any structural building work, level crossing gates, and all kinds of similar functions. The depot served much of the West Riding area. I believe it has become part of the Grangefield Industrial estate.A little to the east of the station was a private branch which curved northwards. Entry was from the east, and it crossed Stanningley Town Street and entered the yard of Geo. Cohen, later the 600 Group,and led to several sidings within.

The canteen wasn't bad up in the engineers'run my Francesand Cath as I remember.J I Case who made tractors also had a siding.It used to be a sight to watch the large steam loco,usually a B1 propelling a rake of wagons up the steepish incline into the engineers sidings.

It was indeed one of the better railway canteens, which would make a whole topic of their own. They ranged from very good through indifferent to the abysmal.
