The abandoned train carriages

With 80s and 90s graffiti still etched into the walls, these abandoned carriages once lugged workers, school kids and general commuters to their daily destinations. With mould now covering waterlogged seats, the maps on the walls speak of more dynamic days when people watched the inner-city suburbs speed past.

Comprised of fibreglass walls and ceilings lined with latent fluorescent light bulbs, the carriages former seating areas accommodated patrons who usually travelled face-to-face on cushioned benches that ran down a narrow central isle. Built to facilitate the cities ever growing population, many Sydney carriages were two stories high.

Sitting idle in a field, these forgotten train wrecks are shrouded in high grass. Becoming homes for the birds and possums, they are each filled with memories of bygone decades.
