"I passed Usak depot by bus recently (June 21st, 2007), seeing several old rusting steam locos standing on the track outside the station. Getting off the bus I had a closer look, finding 11 steam locomotives mostly rotten outside.

Inside depot were some more steam locomotives, but it was hard to see number or to take picture because of light conditions."
