End of the Line: 180 Decayed Carriages in Train “Graveyard”

1
The carriages have decayed over time, on February 27, 2015, in Purwakarta, Indonesia. Dozens of trains are stacked on top of each other in what looks like a post-apocalyptic world. The old electric trains that travelled in and out of Jakarta, Indonesia, are weathered and decayed over time. The trains were used everyday since the 1980s and carried thousands of people to work. Now the carriages, which were once the lifeblood of public transport in the south-Asian city, have been left to rust among shrubbery. After the trains reach the end of their life they are left at the Purwakarta station where they are piled on top of each other. (Photo by HKV/Barcroft Media)
