A locomotive graveyard
The state of New Jersey is known for many things, but deep-sea train wrecks are not one of them—well, not until 1985, when two rare trains from 1850 were discovered in Long Branch under 90 feet of water. The steam engines remain shrouded in mystery, as there’s no record of them being lost—or even being built. Though the locomotives were never reported missing, it’s believed they fell victim to a powerful storm while they were being transported across the Atlantic Ocean passenger-free. They remain eerily preserved under a thick layer of rust.
