Wordless Wednesday #4 -- Abandoned Trains in New York State

Wednesday, July 14, 2010


Mark and I went on a trip to Cooperstown, New York in July 2009 to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame. As we drove around the beautiful New York State countryside, we discovered these abandoned trains somewhere around the little hamlet of Maryland, New York.

  2. @Ms. Understood -- Aren't they cool? So mysterious, too. Why were they abandoned in the middle of remote countryside?

  8. @caite -- That old train attached to the house seemed like it was being refurbished to be a restaurant -- and then abandoned.

  12. I like when they get turned into restaurants or even hotel rooms. It gives them a new use that is fun.

  13. @paige -- yes, that second photo was apparently turned into a restaurant (along with the house) but looked abandoned.

  14. Beautiful pictures! I have always had a strange fascination with old trains... By far my favorite way to travel :) (well, with a newer one, preferably!)

  15. @cornflakegirl74 -- I'd love to do more traveling on trains. It would be fun to go across the United States on a train, and I would love to go on the Orient Express in Europe!

  19. @Zabrinah -- My boyfriend and I were fascinated by these trains. There was no one around to ask, because it was in remote countryside with spread-out farms. Very beautiful. Thanks for your kind words about my photos!

  22. I know this might be old, but I know the one train engine is an old PRR GG1 engine, which surprises me that it hasn't been saved from destruction, because GG1s are almost always in Muesums now.

  23. When I saw these trains in 2009, they were just sitting around the countryside, forlorn and abandoned. I have no idea if they are still there.

  24. The GG-1 belongs to the Leatherstocking Railway Historical Society in Cooperstown. It's not abandoned, just in storage. Unfortunately it's outside and not indoors.
