Additional information:
Trolley poles wave aimlessly in the air for these BUTs that have made their final journey and are awaiting the cutter's torch that has already reduced the industrial steam locomotive on the right to small pieces. 1302 on the left was the first of the batch, arriving a couple of months before the rest and surviving to the last day of operation.
