I'm a French artist, and my name is Dimitri "Jahz Design." I graduated as a graphic designer. I have always been interested in history and architectural remains. It was in 2013 that I developed my interest in the urban photography of heritage in disuse.

In this series of photos, I take you on a discovery of abandoned trains around the world. These locomotives that once roamed the rails with pride are now abandoned, leaving behind traces of the past and a ghostly atmosphere. Through my photos, I invite you to dive into the mysterious and fascinating universe of ghost trains.

This is another Greek locomotive - Piraeus, Athens and Peloponnese Railways (SPAP) Class Δι, built by Società Italiana Ernesto Breda in 1951-52. I do not know the actual number, but it's interesting to note that the photo is mirrored, because this type had the firebox door hinged on the right. Also, I know exactly where it is and which way it's facing - it can be found here, in Myloi: 37.555895, 22.716754

Very nice photos :) Could it be possible to know where did you take them? Not like a high precission location, as that could be a bad idea, I'm asking only for the country. I'm a train nerd, and I would love to know that detail :D

These are old Soviet ТГМ3 (TGM3) diesel-hydraulic locomotives. Since 3,538 of them were built, it's impossible to say where they are, since they could be anywhere from Uzbekistan to Ukraine...
