    Hej guys, first time I've attempted to document this type of work, being more into photography than the Urbex scene. Due to there being very little urban/industrial decay in old York town I decided to do the site where I started my career and which ceased in function over 3 years ago. The site I've heard is schedule for demolition soon so was only able to get into the wagon depot as the old sawmill and other buildings are boarded/welded up or condemned. After several sychophantic emails I managed to get a set of keys and got in with my gear.

    All I know of this place is it served as a maintenance depot for OTM (On Track Machine) OTP (On Track Plant), you say tomato.. Being on the east coast mainline it was conveniently situated and from memory, served Tampers and I believe Rail Delivery Trains as well as many other vehicles. From speaking to retired folk it functioned for many years as British Rail before the privatiRAPEsation becoming Jarvis and then serving its last days as Fastline.

    All the following photos are done by HDR. I know not everyones choice I too hate the HDR shitpiles that go around, but I use it in the following to get maximum exposure and even composition in an otherwise very dark environments. Please explore my Flickr http://www.flickr.com/kopex as there are more decent shots full size and I'm number whoring :-) Enjoy
