I may have been mistaken and Neville Hill may have been engine sheds. I remember as a child they had a coal filler where a truck would go up the side of it and tip to fill the hoppers. I watched that many times

My great uncle John Horner was an engine driver. He was born in 1883 and so would have retired just after nationalisation. In the 1901 census he is 18 and working as an engine cleaner. He is living in Wortley, West Leeds. In 1912 he is a fireman living in Armley (wedding cert).
In 1932 he and his wife moved to York Road in Leeds, about twenty minutes walk from Neville Hill I have always assumed that he would pick up his engine from there but I may be wrong.
Does anyone know whether he is likely to have got into the BR era or might he have finished early. I am assuming that he would have worked for the North Eastern Railway when he first started tho he moved to Leeds somewhere between 1891 (Halifax) and 1901 Leeds so it could have been something like the L&Y. I seem to remember that Central Station in Wllington St was LNER and City Station in City Square was LMS.
As you see I am in a bit of a fog - any help appreciated as I want to try to get his records.
