Commenting on a second post of yours tonight, I'd say you need to reevaluate where you get your information.
That "Alco" cab isn't being cut up, thats simply the transfer table cab. The table runs out to those curved leads for cars/locos to access the shops.
There have been no GP38's on the property in 5 years, so they aren't cutting any up.
There have been no ALCO's on the property for hmm, 15 years give or take. So they aren't cutting any up.
There are always scrap piles roughly the size in that video in that section. Its where they store and scrap junk. It's not surprising that old junk 40ft cars would be cut up. They are old, useless cars. Customers want 50' highcubes not leaky old C plate 40 footers. Old gons, same thing. Nothing new here. And with no video of excavators with claws, I'm not inclined to think much is actually being cut up at the moment. Seems an especially strange time to cut up anything, as prices were relatively low right now.
