Hiya I study art and at the moment I'm doing a project on machinery focusing on old, rusting industrial things. Anyone who's into going to the industrial sites could you please help me out by explaining what you like about this sort of thing. Of course I do have my own views on this but I am running out of things to say haha. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tar :rolleyes:

For me........We live in a Modern World where Old Rusting machinery etc does not normally play a major part anymore, so anytime you come across it you"re gonna get a buzz & normally if it"s still standing it"s because it"s bloody impressive & was too much trouble to shift.

Personally i progressed from working on Armoured vehicles through to heavy plant machinery (Crawler Cranes/Draglines and the like) into the Marine side of things & the more normal engineering machinery side of things .....all mostly gone now in my Company :( but basically it"s been my working life & it"s Boy"s Toys for me :thumb

Now if i"d feel the same if i"d spent my life in a different environment..:confused:

I'm just fascinated by anything that's British and pre 1970 to be honest and I actively seek this stuff out, both in operational and abandoned states. There's something about old British kit that gets my blood pumping, and it could be absolutely anything from a tiny English Electric fusebox to an Avro Vulcan... Kinda why I don't get off on the Euro derps, I just can't relate to them in the same way.

Maybe I could get away with Germany, they have some fantastic kit, Maybach and Daimler Benz...

Anyway, I'm ranting again - short answer I guess would be local interest and history :thumb
