    Default Train Graveyard Sept/08


    Well, for a final fantasy fan let me first say..........
    i died and went to midgar!!!!!
    lol!
    This little peach of a site is just off the A1 somewhere near scotch corner... driven past it a few times and always wondered why there is a family of dead train carriages sitting, rotting in a field in the middle of nowhere.... pity we never got to find out. Made for a good afternoon's snoop though so on with the pics!!!


    mmmmmm, greenery......












    bigger than your average diesel engine.... :D




    Another engine




    more greenery!








    a big, BIG diesel loco..












    Very, very claustophobic in here!!!!! But stunning, can you imagine the heat and the noise and the vibration coming from in here when it was running? Wouldn't like to be an engineer in there like!!!



    moooorrreeeee greenery......

    lol!
    took loads of pics, so there are more HERE!
    enjoy!!!

    Looks like this has become the latest tourist guide simplicity site to be waded into by any passer by.
