Vehicle graveyards are pretty self explanatory – they are the places situated around the world where vehicles go to die a slow, slow death to the elements and rust. These vehicles are generally scavenged or scrapped for their parts before rusting completely. The decaying vehicles are often an eerie sight to behold, but people love to explore the confines of the graveyard to see everything that once was so powerful and mighty. There are bizarre stories behind many vehicle graveyards these days. Here are ten that will blow your mind.
Bolivia’s Train Graveyard is located high up in the Andes. In the 1940s, the mining economy in the area collapsed entirely. Many of the steam trains in the area were decomissioned and then abandoned along the salt flats.
The Chatillon Forest Car Graveyard once concealed four car graveyards, each containing over 500 vehicles that were slowly rusting away. In 2010, the majority of the graveyards were cleaned up amongst environmental concerns.
