Both built in 1966, retired in 2012, now awaiting their fate at the Bender, our infamous scrapyard. :(

Looking at how it's been scrapped yesterday, I think that's probably not necessary....

I see they've locked the gate and barricaded it so they can't escape...

Sometimes, they'd even pile wheelsets in front of that gate. [link] No idea why... Perhaps to stop metal thieves from opening it.

Very sad! The track to the dreaded yard looks freshly ballasted are they expecting to be busy ?

Indeed...

The track used to make a right turn to connect to the passenger mainline. They now cut that connection and instead laid some new tracks that connect straight to the freight line you see in the distance. You can see the difference on this pic: [link]

Ah I see with the comparison, I must have see hundreds of pictures of Benders,You would think I would have noticed the access rails go in a different direction! Cheers Soma.

To be fair, one usually doesn't see the rails, as most photos are of locomotives standing at the very end of the line. I'm probably the only guy zooming in so much that the rails are visible in the distance. :XD:
