Not entirely sure where this fits best... Not a public building, but public transportation. Feels like this is the right spot to post this.

I photographed this abandoned first class train compartment almost four years ago. At the time I was just starting out with photography. You might see some technical errors here and there. So be kind! :) I recently re edited them and despite the flaws I'm not ashamed to share them with you... :)

As to the history of this train I'm afraid there's nothing I can tell you. It was taken away about a year ago. The way in which it was removed (very carefully) would suggest it was taken to a workshop to be restored for a museum, but even that is mere speculation. Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy the images. To me they are reminiscent of a time when travel by rail was something of a luxury. I even remember traveling in trains like this as a young boy. With any luck I'll be able to bring that nostalgic feeling across with these photos. Enjoy!

Nothing wrong with those photos at all mate. In fact they're really nice. I never visited this one but saw a similar one in 2014 and my photos really were shit !! I wonder if that's still there actually :unsure:

Beautiful report, the train has been bought by a railway museum and is at the moment in France undergoing renovation works. Unfortunately, it will never ride again since the train normally consists of 3 carriages and there is only one preserved. So, in a few years you will be able to see it renovated!
