Hi all,

Been looking at a few posts on here regarding the Electric Railway Museum, aka Coventry's train graveyard. Sadly, the museum has been forced to shut down and all items from the site are now being moved around the UK.

You can see regular updates on their Facebook page:

Sad to see it go like this.

It didn't go bust or anything, the council refused to renew the lease. I think an access road to a new industrial estate is going to be built through the site. I was told they are looking for new premises but in the meantime, as you say, the collection is being spread around the country to other museums for storage.

Here's a pic of a carriage negotiating the exit back in April -
