    Default Train Graveyard, February 2016


    At last I get to go to visit a train graveyard! I went to Oakamoor for a look round but even the rails have been taken away from there and scrapped.

    (non-HD people should press the back button and look at some drains :p)

    Anyway, just before it was dark I managed to get pictures from another location I'd seen on Google Maps. I couldn't get up onto all of the carriages because of a bad elbow at the moment :( I'm surprised it hasn't been sold off for scrap. It was nice to go inside a proper old fashioned passenger carriage which hadn't been vandalized in any way.

    First some general shots from walking around......



















    and my favourite carriage......

    Thanks guys. Makes a change from playing train simulator :) Byker - I just take three exposures and merge them together in Photoshop / Photomatix then play around until I like the look.
