New Jersey’s Deep Sea Train Graveyard: Locomotives Lost In The 1850s Found Preserved 90 Feet Under Water

Posted by admin on Feb 19, 2013

Archeologists have discovered a train graveyard off the coast of New Jersey, where two rare locomotives from the 1850s lay preserved under 90 feet of water. It remains a mystery how the two steam engines were sunk. There is no historical record of them ever being built and no record of them being lost.

Explorers believe that the engines were lost in a storm five miles off the coast of Long Branch, New Jersey, as they were being transported from Boston to the Mid-Atlantic.
