Found this graveyard full of old carriages and engines on the way back from the Get Carter Carpark visit in Gateshead.

I love all things rail and after finding my way in, I was in heaven :)

Loads of stuff here dating back to the British Rail days of old. This is however a dangerous site full of sharp metal spikes and rotten floors...be careful if you visit.

Hope you enjoy......KingElvis

Superb photo's. Love the one with the ferns growing through the carraige floor. I remember going aroung Dai Llewellyns breakers yard in Barry in the early 80's and I didn't have a camera ~ such a shame as there were so really great pictures to to be had.

Looks like 47540 is making a bid to return to her original body colour livery of Green which is the colour she was when released to traffic 17/3/64 as D1723.

That is a great find. nice one! imalso supprised there is no graff inside the trains as it looks like it could have been a great smoking den for locals in its prime.
