Storyline

Scattered around the world are long-forgotten engineering marvels, decaying cities and empty factories that once stood on the cutting edge of design and construction. Today they are discarded, dangerous, and some of them are even deadly. "Mysteries of the Abandoned" reveals why these engineering triumphs were built and how they were left to crumble. In each hour long episode, stories tell of who originally designed the structure, its historical significance, and why it was ultimately no longer viable. California's Goat Canyon Trestle railway, Pennsylvania's Kinzua Viaduct steel bridge, the Grand Goulets Road in the French Alps, and Hashima Island, a once thriving and now deserted Japanese island, are among episode subjects.

They can't get coordinates right
12 May 2018 | by calendar-94345See all my reviews

I just watched an episode about the Salton Sea in California. At the beginning of the segment they show a globe and the coordinates of the Salton Sea as 33 degrees, 19 minutes, 42.9 seconds north and 115 degrees, 50 minutes, 36.2 seconds east. No part of California is in the eastern hemisphere! I noticed the same mistake on another episode. You would think they could get coordinates right in the second season of the program. The narrator also said the Salton Sea was in the desert of Colorado.
