    Default Trains trains trains...


    Martino ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/martino_ ) and myselve went away to enjoy a good weekend with sun, beer, bbq and great locations.
    Driving around we noticed a big factory.
    When we checked it out we see that it is a train workshop.
    A big part is still in use, and a smaller part, also the oldest part of the building is abandoned, and inside are some old trains.
    Its a bit similar like the one known as 'The train graveyard', but a bit smaller.

    Its a friday, the friday of the Easter-weekend.
    We don't see anyone around or inside the factory, but the big doors are open.
    Ok, time to infiltrate!

    Wow some great shots there! I love railway stuff from disused stations to Electric locos!. these shots look like they are Continental?
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    What a great find! The factory building's really interesting...plus trains as well!
    Love the pic of the big old doors with the light filtering through.
    Neat! :)

    Great find mate love the old building. The trains definitely look different to ours though especially the carrages. They must have been designed for very low platforms judging by the steps

    This is really wonderful. It's pristine compared to how it would look if it was in the UK. Great find
