    Not a big explore, but a curious one. Kind of two sites in one.

    The main place we poked around in was Tilbury Riverside station. Oddly, this is still technically part of the rail network. Try buying a ticket or looking for timetable info... it still exists. Slight problem: It closed in 1992. It's a virtual station now, just a bus link. The rails have been ripped up, so it's very very gone.

    But the station is there, nestling up against the London Internation Cruise Terminal. Although - by the numbers - that's London's place for cruise ship stops, it's not used that much and has been left unmodernised.

    We spent an hour or two in the station, and a brief time in the cruise terminal.

    Morse code stuff. I liked the addition of the "Radar Room".

    Wimm's loos... the light in here was fab. I suspect you might be seeing some rocking pics from here, by Payno, at some point. In the meantime, here's my humdrum take on it:

    Lockers... the odd thing was that - given that it closed in 1992 - you'd expect things to be vaguely modern. But everything is 1950s-ish. A complete outpost.

    Finally a few bits from the cruise terminal.
