Probably of these engines and a few others, doubt they will ever be used again!

Abandoned SNCB Train Graveyard, Belgium (SNCB (the National Railway Company of Belgium) has got it covered, and by “it” we mean several dozen disused and retired locomotives and coach cars. Formerly a repair and maintenance depot, the location became a pure storage facility in the year 2000 and unlike Sydney’s sadly decorated trams, the trains here are protected and preserved)

Where do obsolete trains go when they die? Many end up in railroad graveyards where these former station-stopping locomotives stay stopped and stationary.
