Ohio Railroad Locomotive Graveyard

The area around Youngstown, Ohio, hosts a number of abandoned locomotives. Among these, some are being disassembled while others are kept intact, ready for either reuse or preservation.

LTEX Rail has established itself in the locomotive scrapping industry for numerous years. Its storage tracks are densely packed with a wide array of first and second-generation locomotives and switchers. These come from a variety of companies, including Amtrak, Canadian National, Union Pacific, Conrail, VIA, and others.

Furthermore, LTEX Rail maintains a substantial inventory exceeding 400 EMD and GE locomotives that are immediately available for clients throughout the United States. These locomotives are offered under various terms, including leasing, lease-to-own, or direct purchase. Adjacent to these facilities, there is a large warehouse that houses thousands of both used and rebuilt locomotive components.

Previously, the site served as the location for the McDonald Works of the United States Steel, which ceased operations in 1981.

Other Railroad Cars

These railroad cars are stored on leased land and are slated for restoration.

Looks like they have been sitting around for many years. Rusting away.. they should be recycled and mke new ones instead of being just an eye sore.

You didn’t say EXACTLY WHERE in Ohio this Locomotive graveyard was located. Near Lordstown Ohio perhaps?

It’s located in McDonald Ohio. Heading towards Niles you can actually see a lot of them from the road. I’m not sure if you are aloud to trespass and I have no clue as to who to even get in touch with.
