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

Cobland, otherwise known as Derbyshire lol.
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,

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:(

Took this pic a couple of weeks ago, although now it is only the Loco left, and that has had it's name plate stolen:(

perhaps the land owner put the trains there cos he /she knew that the land would have to be compulsory purchased in order to create the new motorway and made a deal that they got paid for land as well as the scrap value of the trains possibly?

Have a look at my Flickr mate, I'm currently trying to document all the buildings that are going to be lost as a sort of mini project. I'll put a report up when I 've done them all;)
