Railway Coach Graveyard – Worcestershire

I thought I should include something a little different. It’s not a huge factory, asylum, or even a petrol station. It’s a few railway coaches. “Dumped” in a quarry/old airfield.

The place is totally weird. A few of the coaches are on rails. And a few are just on the road.

There are also a billion old caravans, road coaches and tractors about, but I didn’t have time to look around…

Mixmag Coach

This coach was in a field. It was used as some sort of information points for raves and concerts!

Inside the yellowish & brown ones

The two coaches in the previous picture had arrived a few weeks before by road. They had been dumped at Horsham for years. I was surprised by the amount of things still in them, like an old clock, a radio, and a soap…

    The “yellowish” ones are from break down train formations (usually include/d a crane) sorry for being geeky but used to be a train driver!!!!

    The Mk1 TBCK ex- CEP Car No.70346. Set 1532.
    was purchased by a Company called Angel Entertainment who painted the graffitti on it for its use as a Disco Sound van for an open air Rave at Long Marston Aerodrome, Bank Holiday August 2004.
