Le cimetière de trains

Visited: 2012

France

I found this derelict trains at an old shunting yard in the north of France. The trains and wagons are all owned by a association of volunteers. This club of railroad fanatics started in 1981 and collected and restored old railroad locomotives, carriages and wagons. In 1990 they start a touristic museum line. After 4 years the trains make their last journey due to compliance issues.

The association is located in an old station, the rolling stock is parked outside at the old tracks. Because there is a lack of fundings and interest of the public, the vehicles are now rusting away.
