Down by the train yards

This particular train yard has LOTS of freight trains that have been sitting on the tracks rusting away over the years. It was about a 5 minuet walk from my house but I hadn’t explored it in the 1 and a half years that I have lived here, Till one day when on a mission with mariarchi we decided to go and take photos of the rusting trains and the offices that were then.

The great staircase drain.

this past weekend A few mates and I decided to go draining. The weather was good the mood of the group was great and all we had to do was go down the drains for a few hours and take photos. mission accomplished!

We took lots of photos and walked for ages ducking and weaving in and out of the drains and side tunnels. This is the money shot for me. my pick of the bunch that I took that day.

This drain that i have been to a million times in the past year or so isn’t the biggest drain and it doesn’t have any side tunnels. it’s just a big round concrete pipe that spans the length of 100 meters or so. So why do I feel the urge to visit it so often i hear you ask. Well the answer is half way down this big round pipe is a huge pipe that come out to the surface which lets in lots of natural light and the shape of it is truly great.

I have no idea of what this “sky light” half way down the tunnel is used for but it makes me happy walking to this area The engineering of this structure must have some use to it. I am sure the government wouldn’t waste tax payers money. *clears throat* In the area there is another similar smaller drain which stops at a dead-end with and has the same thing. a sky light. weird!

The first time walking towards the sky light you know its going to be a great tunnel to visit.

you don’t need to walk to the structure that i call the sky light but it’s not that far from the main entrance and it’s REALLY big and a great place to take things into perspective.

Upon entering the area where you walk though a foot of water to get to the inside of the tunnel you see the entrance to the tunnel and said skylight.
