The Forgotten Railcars of Miami

Potus 1

POTUS 1

Although the secrecy surrounding the location of Miami’s railcar graveyard hasn’t been effective in protecting these relics from the attention of vandals, photographers and local historians have fought to slow the dilapidation of the antique train cars by keeping their residential address from being posted on the Internet.  In keeping with this informal speakeasy covenant, Drunk in a Midnight Choir will not disclose the location of the locally famous storage yard, other than to say that it is somewhere outside of Miami’s city limits and it’s predictably close to a train track.

Freelance photographer Mark Leone, however, not only discovered the whereabouts of the ancient and ruined railcars, but was also able to take these stunning lowlight photos that he agreed to share with the Choir. This collection of images features railcars that are marked POTUS 1, POTUS 2, and Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, indicating somewhat prestigious origins, which unfortunately, have not been authenticated.
