Well, for a final fantasy fan let me first say..........
i died and went to midgar!!!!!:lol:
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!!!

Awesome thread! The engines look great do you know what make they are? :question:

The 47 is Sulzer engine.

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

It's an interesting site. :) Far better for us that someones misfortune has provided us with easier access. Given its rural location I bet there won't be much vandalism going on there.

You would think that wouldn't you, but there is a lot of graffiti and many smashed windows. :( Which unfortunately is speeding up the deterioration of the carriages.

@She - Was nice to meet you :) See you again Friday.

It's a real shame when things get smashed and sprayed. Good on you's for recording it though.

The Mk11 generator coaches were fitted with Detroit Diesel power units.

Seem to have read somewhere recently that the owner of this 'museum of MK11 coaching stock'. had been made bankrupt or has forfeit ownership of the property in lieu of rent. The writer seemed to suggest that the site would soon be cleared.

I'd just thought I'd let you all know about that site in Sinderby, having been a railway enthusiast all my life.
The site is by no means abandoned. The stock on site (well at least the Class 47 locomotive), is owned by a dentist and a railway enthusiast, and they intend to restore all the stock on the site. The 47 has been there since 2004, having arrived from Crewe TMD (Railway Depot). I have been to the site on 2 occasions (my Dad 3 times), and it seems as though nothing or little has been done to any of the stock on the site.

Well that's all I know
