By chance I got to talk to a fellow urban explorer and learned about the existence of an abandoned train yard not too far from me. Since I still had a few days of vacation left I decided to check out the place real quick to see if I could find it, but I didn’t want to explore it just then.
When I took a wrong turn that turned out to be a right turn I suddenly found myself in urbex heaven and there was no resisting the urge to explore just there and then.
Before I get to the pictures I want to tell you a bit about the history of the place. The massive complex spans around a center plate that once turned to allow trains to be parked and sent on new rails, but was destroyed in a huge fire more than twenty years ago. The middle plate somehow went missing – my best guess is that it was mostly wood and burned – and is now a lake in the middle of a small forest. The whole inside has been reclaimed by nature and it’s quite eerie to walk through a forest that you know has grown inside a building.
Only the outer walls remain of the main complex, though there are some buildings – that I didn’t get a chance to explore this time – that I assume used to be office or machinery storage. I will surely explore them at a later date.
That is all I have today, but it surely won’t be the last time I visit this place. I hope you liked the short afternoon trip as much as I did!
