The Tragic Story Behind New Jersey’s Chilling Train Graveyard

New Jersey is home to a wide range of spooky, eerie, mysterious and abandoned places, but many of them are totally off limits. This train graveyard is easily accessible (you can see the trains from the road) and has an interesting history to go along with it. While fascinating, a terrible tragedy once occurred here, before the bustling transportation hub fell into decline.

It’s interesting to see how mother nature is taking over, and everything is falling into decay. Though there are currently “no trespassing” signs, many still explore the trains. Be aware that this is dangerous, and you can see so much in the footage featured below. If you’re interested in learning about other decaying places in New Jersey, check out the story behind the (almost) ghost town of Sea Breeze.
