    Default Train Graveyard, North Yorks -June 08


    An abandoned train storage in Sinderby North Yorkshire. This collection of rolling stock was assembled by the mk2 coach association which was one man's ill fated dream of opening a museum. The land the rollingstock is situated on was served with a compulsory purchase order by the council as part of a project to widen the A1, which runs parallel to the site. Unable to foot the bill for removing the train and carriages to another site the owner has abandoned them.

    Update:- The engine and rolling stock are currently being moved to Dalton Airfield




















    Very Das Boot in here.

    .

    Drivers eye view.













    Don't know what this bird is but it wasn't scared of anything.

    Excellent pics mate, love anything to do with railways. Such a shame the guy has gone bankrupt, he does have a nice collection there.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal

    ps, the bird that's just sat on the step, is a baby thrush. The young don't move unless you get extremely close to them.

    Moving those carriages would cost a fortune, the land owners won't want to pay for it and the owner can't. They'll probably end up being scrapped in situ, and moved in smaller pieces:(

    Wow that is really up my street. Brilliant shots. Th 47 certainly looks like it has seen better days. Love the nameboard, very suprised its still there.:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'
