||Certain withdrawn locomotives have recently been scrapped at Dover in a yard belonging to Dover Industries Ltd. This yard is adjacent to the eastern arm of Dover harbour, and is easily visible from a public footpath up the cliffs nearby. Engines are towed there along the sea front, and the track along this route has been relaid and set in concrete. A 'P' class 0-6-0T is used for motive power, though it is rumoured that diesels may be used later. No. 31511 is said to have been cut up here in February, but confirmation is required. On 1st March 1951, the only thing visible in the yard which could be identified as part of a locomotive was a bunker with the number 31546 (from an 'H' class 0-4-4T) and this was being cut up by oxy-acetylene equipment. The 0-4-2T No. 2359, still outside Dover shed, is used as a stationary boiler.
