These are the railway graveyards the Instagram generation are bringing back to life

TOURISTS are flocking to visit huge train and tram graveyards scattered the world over.



From the rusting metal of dozens of trains dropped like kids toys about the Bolivian desert to railway relics growing moss in Poland, there is something eerie and spectacular about the sight.

In Leicester there was once a train pyramid, piled high and wide with diesel locomotives and in our own backyard there are colourful collections of carriages tucked away and decaying.

Sydney Trains is preparing to get rid of its outdated fleet of ‘S’, ‘L’ and ‘R’-set stainless steel suburban trains and we found out exactly where they’ll put them.

This is what happens to trains when they die.

That's pretty sad, all in all. Are there any such graveyards near you?

No such graveyards near here. It would be neat to rummage through them if there were.

Soviet designed "turbo" train. I would assume it was a precursor to the modern "bullet" trains.
