  1. Alright, this is my first post on here but I will get right to it. This hospital is trashed beyond belief but was still fun to explore. It was shut down in 1992 after the USAF pulled out of George AFB following the end of the cold war. These pictures were taken in December of 2018.
  2. Carrie Furnace Hot Metal Bridge. This spanned the Monongahela River to a large blast furnace complex which was abandoned in the 70s along with this bridge. It was built in 1900 and is 51 ft high.
  3. A night in the Paris Metro My first report for a while and I felt that my photos from each location wouldn't create a substantial enough report. Because of this I decided to compile them into a more lengthy post documenting the night in which we explored various sections of the Paris Metro. I hope you enjoy reading my story and seeing the images I managed to capture. After arriving in Paris with @Letchbo for a short weekend break, we decided to begin our night of exploring by hitting a classic metro spot. Once we'd safely entered the area we wanted to photograph, we hid in an alcove for a short period of time. Patiently waiting for the end of service with front row seats to watch the last remaining trains hurl past us. As soon the service concluded for the night, we eagerly got our cameras out and started shooting. Fortunately we managed to grab a couple of decent photos before we heard what we presumed were track workers approaching nearby. We quickly concluded it was best to abort mission and keep moving ahead. Photographing sections of track as we progressed down the line, until we reached the next station and swiftly departed unnoticed. By the time we were back out above ground the night was still young and we headed onto our next location. View of a train passing on Line 10 The double raccord We'd visited this spot earlier in the year along with @Conrad and @DirtyJigsaw after visiting another of Paris' famous ghost stations. But when we arrived at this one, we noticed a large number workers across the tracks and decided to give it a miss. Fast forward to October, we thought try our luck again. My partner made his way over the fence but as I was about to climb in and join him, someone abruptly stopped me in my tracks. "Bonsoir!" "Bonsoir?" The rather authoritative looking chap approached me and continued speaking to me in French (to which I didn't fully understand.) I politely explained we were English. He then proceeded to pull a badge out and clearly stated to me the word every urban explorer wants to hear on a night out exploring the metro. "Police." Oh fuck. That's when we thought the night had sadly come to a prompt conclusion. Fortunately for us after a brief discussion with us claiming to be photographing the canal, he decided to allow us to resume our business and once he was well out of sight we made our way straight in. Onto a bit of history, Arsenal station was officially opened in 1906 and is located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris. In addition to this, it is also situated on line 5 between the Bastille and Quai de la Rapée stations. After 33 years of operation, it was closed in 1939 at the start of the Second World War. This was due to French resistance members allocating the area as an ammunition depot. Once Paris had been liberated from German forces August of 1944, a battle more commonly known as Battle for Paris and Belgium. It was decided reopening Arsenal would be inefficient. This was on account of its close proximity to neighbouring stations which limited the flow of passengers. For 75 years the station has been largely abandoned aside from graffers, urban explorers, photographers and avid thrill seekers, such as ourselves. Once we'd grabbed a few shots of the abandoned Arsenal Station, we continued photographing another small section of track further down the line. It was quite photogenic and was a welcomed bonus to what had already been a predominately successful night for the both of us. Before long the morning was fast approaching, coinciding with the threat of the service resuming. We reluctantly called it a night, making our way out and back to our accommodation, covered in metro dust and feeling pretty relieved we managed to pull it all off after a few close encounters. As always if you got this far, thanks for reading

  5. I had an awesome time here, it's a huge abandoned factory It's still guarded, but easy to visit .. I've spend a lot of time inside and a local person also told us about the history of the place. His family didn't have any hot water, so when he was a child , his mother used to take him to the factory to give him a bath .
  6. Once in a while a house appears that is just something else and this house was one of those. Visited with Ninja Kitten one cold November day. I know a lot of history to this house but will hold it back to protect the house. Giving too much detail of its history along with names would compromise it. The photographs can speak for themselves. A veritable feast of dusty vintage artefacts locked in another time. The bedroom pictured here looked as if it had remained as it was when the very young soldier perished in WW1. An organic museum if ever there was one in existence. A museum to a fallen soldier. Hope you enjoy
  7. https://imgur.com/gallery/iy0gFth Figured I'd just link the album here since it's eaisier, not used since the 70s
  8. This is one for the history books, I am really unsure how long this factory will stay how it is. It's one of the best, if not the best spot, that I have ever visited. It looked like there had been some vandalism at first when we entered, but in the upper and other parts of the factory, everything looks so untouched, it's unbelievable.

  9. This is my personal sweet spot. It is an abandoned cement factory. It was built in 1949 and was the big employer of the residents in the nearby small town. After ww2 the need for cement was enormous due to the building of new houses. It was closed in 1981, after that some recycling experiments were done until the place was completely abandoned in 2003.
  10. This is my first post on here, and these were taken with a cell camera, but I found this site interesting. This is a former control site for a Nike Missile Base that was part of a defense ring around a major city during the Cold War. The location where the missiles were stored/lauched in a few miles away and in use. Eventually this was used as a State National Guard Unit until abandoned around 1996. The night photos are of 2nd base in this region which is partially used
  11. Hello everybody. Today I want to share an especially untouched location with you guys. This resort has been closed since the early 2000's and has since then been sitting around in Austria. Due to its remote location, there was no vandalism beside two broken down windows. Originally, this was used as a rehabilitation center for the elderly, as far as I know. Also located on site are a medical facility for routine check-ups and dietary advice. I'd say this was the best location I ever visited in terms of how well it was preserved.

    Hungary End Line

    This place once was a coal mine transportline for train delivery, but since the mine exhausted its left behind to rust away. Just a simple line forgotten. But I liked its mood. Destination: Hungary, Bánk Captures made at 2011.08.28.
  13. This hospital once was the biggest in the region, but since decades its empty, getting near to collapse. Location: Tatabánya, Hungary
  14. Actually these are not abandoned wrecks but pieces from the MALEV (Hungarian Airlines - not existing anymore) @ the Budapest Airplane Museum. Interesting fact - a pity - that Hungary haven't got national airline services these days...
  15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kxl1hb4Tec The train in question is the Eurostar 373018, one of many Eurostar Class 373 trains that started operating in 1994. Capable of speeds up to 186 mph, the Class 373s were specifically designed to transport passengers between London, Paris, and Brussels via the Channel Tunnel. Since 2016, however, many 373s have been withdrawn or scrapped, despite just 22 or 23 years in service. Eurostar 373018 is officially in storage, but the word “abandoned” seems more appropriate. Branches from nearby trees now reach out and touch its windows. Weeds rise up from the rusting tracks on which it sits. Graffiti covers what were once the clean lines of the train’s streamlined form. It looks like the kind of place where Rick Grimes would butcher a bunch of zombies, or where Mad Max would go shopping if he wanted to buy a train. What the future holds for this high-speed train is anyone’s guess. So far, 18 of the 373 Class trains have been sent to be scrapped by European Metal Recycling (EMR) at Kingsbury in the West Midlands region of England. Others have been scrapped in France, three have ended up in museums or colleges, and some lucky 373s have been refurbished and remain in service. Eurostar 373018, however, remains in “storage” in the north of France, a fine nesting place for birds, an interesting canvas for graffiti artists, and an intriguing landmark for train enthusiasts, eagle-eyed users of Google Earth, and urban explorers like AdcaZz whose video exploration of the train you can check out on YouTube. And if you’re wondering why these 373s were abandoned and not reused elsewhere, well, it seems like a few factors were in play. Technology had simply moved on, leaving these 22-year-old trains out of date. It was also more cost efficient to bring in a modern fleet rather than overhaul these existing trains, especially as the replacements had a greater seating capacity, meaning more money over less time. In the end, therefore, many of the 373s were deemed “life-expired.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kxl1hb4Tec
  16. Here's a little selection of some of the more random, less-obvious shots from 10 years of exploring asylums. One shot each from most of the ones I've visited.

  17. Hi Guys, So here it is again, this place must get at least one visit a week now. But I had to check it out for myself. I thought it would be interesting to visit the place all alone, because of the remoteness. Its still in not bad shape, with no graffiti anywhere yet. Just a few things seem to have been stolen since 2015, like the famous pocket watches. Its still a great place to visit, and walk to across the boggy water logged fields.
  18. After the Brownsville General Hospital relocated to its new location in 1965, the former buildings were converted into the Golden Age Nursing Home. Due to the normally full capacity of the Brownsville General Hospital, the hospital relocated. Shortly after its closing, The Horner Nursing Home/Golden Age Nursing Home was made/built in 1929 and closed in 1985 due to reports of horrible conditions and treatment of its patients. The nursing home was a residence for some of the nurses who worked at the hospital. It later became a care facility for the elderly. *Please take note of the sentences shown at the bottom of the video during scenes.* Location: Brownsville, PA Urban Exploration Paranormal Investigations ParaUrbex
  19. The Brownsville General Hospital opened in 1914 but wasn't completed until 1916, and closed in 1965. The hospital was always at full capacity and thus, an addition was made to create a third level over the central section of the building and raised the hospital’s capacity to 100 beds. Due to the capacity, the hospital was then relocated. Shortly after the closing of the hospital, The Horner Nursing Home/Golden Age Nursing Home was made/built in 1929 and closed in 1985 due to reports of horrible conditions and treatment. *Please take note of the sentences shown at the bottom of the video during scenes.* Location: Brownsville, PA Urban Exploration Paranormal Investigations ParaUrbex
  20. I found this house totally abandoned with everything left including the car! Theres so much stuff inside I could literally barely walk around. Be sure to check out my other videos. Thanks a lot. My Channel link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7PBeCakMSXGSD0yHuCXIcQ
  21. Hi Guys I recently came across this abandoned truck compound / workshop, while out on my travels, so I thought I would venture inside for a look around, and shoot a little video... After looking into it, it seems to have been abandoned since around 2009.
  22. Strolling trough the mountains we came across an interesting site. Abandoned cars and a lot of junk on the side of a steep mountain. we have no idea how it got there, but here is a quick look at the spooky abandoned cars of La-Roche.
  23. In the Belgian Ardenne mountains on a spit of land in the small town of La-Roche de Ardenne, Lies a camp site beyond anything i have ever seen. A camping in rapid state of decline, the most uncomfortable place i have ever seen. Dirty and riddled with trash... Oh and the abandoned camp site is right next to it, so don't mistake the two. one just looks abandoned and one is. But feeling our way in darkness we did come across some amazing finds.
  24. The old abandoned farmhouse - Charnock Richard - Chorley - Feb 2018 One of my favourite explores so far this old abandoned farmhouse was brimming with history and fortunately, we made it just before the bulldozers did. I've seen plenty of footage of this old place on the web and it seems we made it just after the foliage had been pruned lol. A quality explore with quality likeminded people.
  25. Abandoned Farmhouse - A Journey into the Past was filmed on a warm day ( 28c ), but inside the house it was ice cold... strange.
