Pulling down
Title:  Pulling down
Description:  BUOI pulls its pick up out of the yard. As we look at the power going away, we see a lead going down to the street to what was once some industrial track, now long abandoned. In the distance past the power, first we see the light poles for the station, remaining long after the platforms were removed, and in the far distance, the red brick of the station building.
