Another little mixed bag of sites me and Flubs visited.

I don't know whats up with my Flickr at the moment, it's showing the larger versions as fuzzy when I know them not to be, they're fine in 800px and lower.

#1 ABT Train Works. I found this place totally by accident and it was on our way down south so I thought we should check it out. Initially I had no idea what it was all I had was the name, but after finding paperwork inside we deduced it used to manufacture train bogies/carriages. The place was massive and very empty, it looks as if brick reclamation is going on but nobody was home. What made this potentially rubbish place better though was the discovery of an intact but abandoned Trabant and the weather - after half an hour or so inside the clouds gathered, and one of the most incredible thunderstorms I've ever seen kicked off. We were in the main manufacturing hall by this point, each steel support column had an attached drainpipe which was cut off at the end and suddenly we heard a wooosh, as water starts gushing out of the 20 or so drainpipes and onto the factory floor, the noise was incredible.

Yes, it really does stretch all the way into the distance.

Next on the derptour is this place, another I found by accident but I swear I've seen it somewhere on the net before. I think it's a tile factory but I'm not sure, it's certainly been derelict a long, long time. Some of the graff inside was brilliant.

Last in this little bunch, Preventorium Dolhain, I liked it here but it was literally a flying visit, I think we spent less than an hour in it.
