    Arrow Yaniv Train Station - Pripyat


    The “Yaniv” train station:

    I know 'trains' are forbidden, so mods feel free to remove if a bit 'trainy'. I've included a building and some 'lived in' trains

    Roughly half a kilometer west of the 'Bridge of Death' is Yanov railway station.



    Funky water tower:



    This is out of the city checkpoint, but is access to this area is still a bit clandestine. It has to be granted by special permission of the ChernobylInterinform, I have no idea why tho.

    Worlds cutest guard dog:



    Fortunately, I was lucky enough to be given permission to explore the yard.






    Yaniv station was the vital passenger pickup point for those arriving by train into Pripyat in the hours after the disaster.




    People who arrived here during this time were moved directly from the trains onto buses and sent right back out of the area to limit their contamination.



    Yaniv is an interesting area to explore on foot. Entry to the station building is now sealed off and used for storage, but the railway lines and what's left of the platform are still accessible. There are many train cars still sitting around on and off the tracks, and most in a very bad way.







    Some are extremely rusty and even too dangerous to enter.







    Besides all the obvious hazards, there were several snakes slithering around.



    One of the lines is still in use. I believe there is approximately one train a month ferrying in vital building materials for the new sarcophagus, which is now underway.











    Some of the huts, and carriages are still being lived in by labourers working in the zone:

    Really good to see another of your reports from the outskirts, away from the tourist trail of Chernobyl and Pripyat. Thanks for sharing.

    It's going to be a sad day when you reports on the place dry up.

    I have to say a big thanks to all that have been there and posted reports and pictures.

    Being honest, I was quite ignorant to the level of 'people' devestation, I knew it was huge, but never really knew about Pripyat, nor the liquidators etc.
    I was in my last year of school when it happened, so my teenage youth probably distracted me from taking in much of the current affairs back then.

    I've only really discoverd this wealth of Chernobyl and Pripyat stuff this week, it's fascinated me, at times haunted me and generally left me a bit speechless.. The pictures, reports and websites that I've visited this week are a mxture of painfully sad, morbidly intriguing/fascinating and leave me with a sense of moral confusion - as to if it should be protected/sealed off as a sort of grave or be shared as a message/warning to the world.. my mind keeps changing.
