4-8-4T no. 6305 was built by Henschel in 1930 and is depicted here in a withdrawn state with its motion removed. Withdrawal for this loco came in 1957 but it, together with classmate 6317, was retained for use as dead weights to embed newly laid track. 6305 didn't surbive after that but 6317 was retained as a museum exhibit at Utrecht. I've no idea where this shot was taken.
