Railway Coach Graveyard – Yorkshire

For those that remember, I visited a “graveyard” for railway coaches in Warwickshire a few months ago. I thought 8ish coaches dumped in the middle of nowhere was impressive. Well today, that was topped with 37 coaches and a loco! Apparently they were bought by some guy who was going to do them up. But hasn’t, and has left them to rot.

Wedged

The coaches were seriously wedged in. There was barely space to walk between them.

Colourful

Nearly every possible colour scheme imaginable was present.

There’s room to fit two more in!

In some cases, getting between rows meant jumping through smashed windows to get to the next coach.

Internals

The inside of the coaches were quite trashed and rotten in some places. Some may argue that that’s standard BR service..
