For those who is planning to go to Antwerp metro! Beware that it's Belgium, and the actual presence of trams in the tunnels might not be consistent with their schedule!

Being already inside one of the tunnels of the active line, we suddenly heard noise behind. I checked the schedule in advance, the next tram was supposed to be only in 8 min, but  it was behind us now! There is nothing in the tunnel where one could hide in, so we had to run to the next station. We managed to hide there right before the tram arrived (thanks to the guy I was with, because he found a good place while I didn't know what to do :) ). I don't know if the driver saw us or not, but no one came to search for us.

Second shot is cool :) 

 

Glad you didn't get splatted ?

The worst thing that could happen there - the tram driver would report it and we would get arrested on one of the two active stations, because there is no other way to get out. And I really didn't want this at the very beginning when we didn't see anything yet.

I also like the second shot. Luckily you reached the station in time and didn't get caught.

That would be actually interesting to know what would happen) Yesterday I had a lot of discussions about Belgian soldiers who shoots everyone without asking because of terrorists and so on. From people who never done urbex, tho...

Its interesting that you say that, as its not entirely unbeleivable nowadays. Terrorists come in all different shapes and sizes, and if someone has no reasonable excuse to be somewhere....

They could've do a better security there, right now whoever can come in, install some explosives on rails and walk out. It's good that we came just to take pictures.

      First report here, the well-known Chateau wolfenstein.
       
      Lost somewhere in the Belgian Ardennes, the castle was built 1931 by a rich Baron.
      It has many use throught the years, hospital, command centre during the war, care home for soldiers and, apparently some kind of jail for war and politic prisonners.
       
      Now, it 's still a part a the hospital complex but it is unused, except for a room where the hospital stocks some servers.

      History 
       
      The engineering company J.E. Billups of Cardiff who also constructed Mireystock Bridge and the masonry work on the Lydbrook viaduct commenced construction of the tunnel in 1872 using forest stone. The tunnel is 221 metres in length and took 2 years to construct. The tunnel allowed the connection of the Severn and Wye Valley railway running from Lydney with the Ross and Monmouth network at Lydbrook. The first mineral train passed through the tunnel on 16 August 1874. Passenger services commenced in September 1875 pulled by the engine Robin Hood.
       
      The history of this section of line is not without incident - a railway ganger was killed in the tunnel by a train in 1893 and a locomotive was derailed by a fallen block of stone in the cutting at the northern entrance in 1898.
      The line officially closed to passenger trains in July 1929 but goods trains continued to use the line until the closure of Arthur & Edward Colliery at Waterloo in 1959 and Cannop Colliery in 1960. Lifting of the track was completed in 1962. The tunnel and cutting were buried with spoil in the early 1970's.
       
      Thanks to the vision and enthusiasm of a group of local Forest railway enthusiasts assisted by Forest Enterprise the top of the northern portal of the tunnel (with its unusual elliptical shape) which has lain buried for 30 years has now been exposed. 
      As of 2018 the tunnel now still lays abandoned with no sign of the cycle track and the £50,000 funding seemingly gone to waste.

      This one was visited on my latest trip through Germany.
      This was the water treatment facility of a power plant. That power plant is already gone. There were also some outdoor water basins ,but they were well overgrown.
      The  only thing I took from this facility were several mosquito's bites.
