Mark from Abandoned Scotland sent me an email to point out their stunning Youtube channel. They are not the usual Scottish Landscape videos but beautifully edited scenes of former industrial and other sites, the forgotten and abandoned places in Scotland.
The video below shows the forgotten railway trains of Dunaskin, not far from Ayr. Mark wrote: “It started life as an Ironworks in 1840 but as the times changed it was uneconomical to keep open and was closed in 1921. It was then used as a brickworks and for coal mining used all the way up to 1988 when the last brick was produced. The Ayrshire Railway Preservation Group now run here stripping the trains down to renovate or to repair other trains. In 2012 there will be Steam Open Days at Dunaskin where everyone will get the chance to ride on various steam trains.”
Make sure to check out the other videos on his Youtube Channel as well.
