Hi fellow explorers,

 

Me and a friend have recently started documenting our explores and we just wanted to say hi to all of you guys on the forum.

 

We are brand new and we do genuinely want to post the best and most interesting content, so any criticism would honestly be appreciated, but equally if we are doing anything right let us know!

 

We have made a YouTube Channel - here is our first vid! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zUUMzKg7lg&t=38s

 

We know it's not perfect!

 

PS - if any of you guys know of any WW2 sites that you think we should explore let us know, we will go anywhere!

 

Thanks,

John

Hi John,

 

I have merged your thread with your introduction.

 

Good to have you here. We will be very interested to see what you have to contribute, and although we do allow youtube videos in the appropriate section, you will get a far better response and audience from photo based reports.

 

Get involved and I'm sure you'll fit right in :)

      Hey! I'm Solixio, feel free to call me Sol, I joined looking for places to explore near me, in Spokane. If you have places I'd love to know where or what they're like, I'm becoming very fascinated with Urban Exploration, any information is welcomed and appreciated! 😁

      Hey guys nice to meet You
      A friend told me about this forum and I want to take a look what's going on here.
      One thing is for sure: You have many many threads here. Could take a few months to read this.
      So I think we will see us more often next time.

      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      Since 2016, however, many 373s have been withdrawn or scrapped, despite just 22 or 23 years in service.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.”
