Abandoned railway wagons OSE (Greek Railways Organization) Thessaloniki, Greece
Broken glasses, dull mirrors, rust and rotten wood, fading skins, rubbing floors, company logos that change as long as you climb and jump from wagon to wagon. Pictures that put you in the process of imagining life on the trains when the train was the most popular and massive mode of transportation, approaching urban life from the visual artery through which it flowed inside and outside borders, faces cultures and civilizations.
A vast area of more than 1000 acres (from the refinery’s height to the bridge of Gallikos), between the branches, the dead railway lines, the stacked wagons traded in the wild, extends the largest train cemetery in Greece, in the region of Ionia. At the point where it is probable that abandoned OSE wagons have been left even since 1960-70, to date they are directed to “grab” the vehicles of the organization that are completing their life cycle.
In the Lahanokipos cemetery, there are currently more than 1000 vehicles looted or not, including historical wagon-museums before 1900.
