Here are some haunting abandoned train stations from all over the world. Being an urban explorer old and forgotten train yards are one of my favourite places to explore. Sometimes you hit a gold mine and there are allot of old train relics around even some abandoned steam locomotives. Here are 5 really cool lost and abandoned train stations.
#1 Michigan Central Depot, Detroit
When the old Michigan Central Depot burned on December 26, 1913 the still unfinished Central Depot was called into service.
The tower rising above was originally going to be a hotel, but was used for offices instead.
The structure was never full used, even during the 1930’s when rail transportations was at its highest, the top 4 floors where never occupied.
In the late 1980’s due to declining rail traffic it was decided to close the mammoth station.
The last train left the station January 5 1998.
It remains derelict and continues its slow decay.
#2 Buffalo Central Terminal
Work on this impressive station started in 1925.
The final train departed this glorious station in October 1979.
Several decades of neglect, allowed this gorgeous building to deteriorate.
Work has begun to restore and re-purpose this old train station.
#3 Tripoli Train Station, Lebanon
This station in Lebanon was opened in 1911.
The station was damaged by Germans during World War I.
It was abandon and left as it was, trains and all.
The old stream locomotives are slowly being eaten by rust.
#4 – Anhlater Bahnhof Station, Berlin
Built in the mid 1800’s Anhlater Bahnhof Station was a massive Train station in Berlin.
Bombed by the US and British during World War II it was mostly destroyed.
All that remain today is a very small piece of the front entrance that was left as a memorial.
#5 Spa Road railway station, England
This site has served as a train station since 1833.
The station was closed in 1915 and fell into derelict condition.
Today the old train station is mainly used for industrial purpose. Explorers can find evidence of its past life in the old boarding platform and ticket booth.
