The Train Graveyard is a location inside the city of Midgar in Final Fantasy VII and Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-. Originally used during the construction of Midgar, this area has since become a junkyard for old and abandoned trains. It is filled with broken trains, creating a maze of rusted metal; an example of Shinra's neglect. Strong winds make the dilapidated carriages creak and groan, and odd high-pitched sounds echo over the area. The Train Graveyard is located next to the Sector 7 slums. This place is an unrevisitable location.
Cloud Strife, Tifa Lockhart and Aerith Gainsborough come to the Train Graveyard after being dropped down into Midgar's sewers by Don Corneo. They make their way through the graveyard on their way to save Sector 7 from the plate being dropped upon it. The party reaches Sector 7 just before the Turks blow up the pillar, causing the Sector 7 plate to collapse.
During the assault on Midgar by the World Regenesis Organization, Vincent Valentine lands in the slums' remains after dropping out of Cid's airship. Out of position, Vincent has to navigate his way through the rubble of disused train cars with Shelke's guidance. The graveyard holds many Deepground troops Vincent must combat, and some WRO soldiers who also ended up out of position. Eventually, Vincent exits the graveyard, and arrives at the front entrance of Shinra Headquarters, which he proceeds to infiltrate.
Final Fantasy VII Edit
Cloud, Tifa and Aerith enter the Train Graveyard from the sewers through a manhole. The trains in the southern half of the Graveyard are immobile and must be climbed over and through to reach the northern half.
The north lies adjacent to the Sector 7 train station. Here some trains have a little power remaining, and Cloud uses this to his advantage by moving the trains to create a bridge, enabling him to cross over into the train station.
On the graveyard the player can receive items by inspecting the oil drums or picking them up off the floor and must move some trains to proceed.
The Train Graveyard is the only place a player can acquire a Ghost Hand (an item which drains MP) by stealing it from the Ghosts. It is also possible to steal a powerful weapon, the Striking Staff, for Aeris from Eligor.
