    Looks somewhat new. With the back windows busted out, my guess stolen and taken for a joy ride. I would report it to the local authorities if you haven't done so already.

    Maybe we should start an abandoned boat thread. Here's mine off of Centennial Trails in Lemont, IL...

    Damn, wish I found this thread before the snow began to fly. There is a little used hiking trail near me that has no less that 10 dirt bikes of various vintages t the bottom since the trail would be very difficult to ride up. Guess I will take pics in 5 months when the snow melt & bring his thread back to life at that time.

    hahaha... I laughed Some really great shots here! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that takes pix of junkers I see when out riding

    Saw this on some random website I was checking out:



    What other trails actually incorporate vehicles as stunts? Very cool!

    Here is an old delivery truck in Lajitas, Texas.



    I have more pictures of the truck here.

    The truck was a sweet find, but where the hell did the sea shell come from? It was just sitting in this dry pond bed perfectly clean...

    I found a few information about the locomotive. It was built in Wien (Austria) in 1942 and was used by German Railways during 2nd World War. After the war was used in Russia and later in Polish Railways until 1991. It is now on siding in Torun (Poland).

    What a great thread!
    Years ago, while riding a trail along a local river, I saw a small Toyota pick-up with the driver's side door wide open sitting along side of the trail. It could not have been driven down the trail, the trail was too tight, it had to have been driven through the woods.
    A little further down the trail, I stopped to pick some blueberries. While reaching through the bush to get some berries way in the back, I look past the berry bush and see a large pot plant happily growing in a small clearing.
    Maybe the two were related somehow? donno, but it made me kind of uneasy.

    Old farm equipment count? This Manure spreader is just off the trail in a local county park--I was struck by the similar size of its tire and my fat bike's...

    In Welland , Ontario, I've been finding all kinds of abandoned things. Cars, ships, trains, factories, hotels.

    Some aren't quite abandoned.

    I'm sure there is a story behind this one




    There's an engine laying on the same trail 1/4 mile downhill. Must have gotten too heavy to carry.

    Since its become a formal city trail system, "Junk car" or "Car" trail has become the sanitized Big Sunny trail. I still can't remember that trail name.

    That looks like the old road grader they had at a farm I worked at as a teen. Pulled it behind a tractor. When I started at the farm, I thought it was an old piece of junk, was surprised to see it actually working a few weeks later. They actually had lots of very old equipment laying around on the "back 40," which the old owner managed to keep working. I can't remember what it had for wheels, though.

    This thread is very cool. I would only have the cars/jumps on Bobsled to offer, but they're already posted here, so... Especially the old locomotive; that is incredible!

    JSM:

    Looks like an old tow behind road grader, for building roads, before they had self motive powered graders.

    Remember all the crap by the German Shepard guy who was encroaching on the rail trail? His own private junk yard, he once told me I couldn't 'ride my bike there. I rode away and he grabbed the back of my bike, big mistake on his part, lets just say the rest is history... LOL
