    Default The train graveyard


    Thanks to sime for the tip of fun no this place.visited this with a few friends.we hit it early on a wet and grey morning.it was a bit of a trek up a very muddy path.i slipped over twice.and was filthy.but it was worth it.you could only get in one train there.but it was lovely and reminded me off the derelict orient express in Belgium.it was nice to wander around the outside too with all the bits and bobs laying about.























































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Nicely done. The LMS brake van still has its leather seats in good condition and there is coal for the stove.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    I remember traveling on trains with seats like that back in the 60s,also always wanting to go in a guards van with a 'stickey out side window'(technical term).A wonderful set ,cheers Mikey
