Pécsbánya-Rendező, 23 December 2020, 07:09 am CET – The thermal power plant in Pécs, handed over in 1959 was a real carbon-eating monster, but after the abolition of coal mining it had to switch to a vegetarian diet. The wood chip-fired power plant block also expects thrown away Christmas trees from January, but mostly consumes trees from the South Transdanubian forests the rest of the year. In the past, much of the coal came from a nearby transfer station, on a conveyor belt, nowadays the logs are arriving on rails. The wagons will be shunted to the siding by the yard locomotive of Pécsbánya-Rendező, a Class 478 ‘Dacia’.
