This place was definitely a nice surprise. The underground was in really good condition (with exception to the offices as you enter the complex) with a lot of nice features.

Kinger has the history of this place covered in his report

We almost gave up trying to find this place after walking around much of the topside buildings and storage bunkers in the morning - interesting nonetheless they didn't yield as much history and original features as we expected.

The storage bunkers that were accessible were mostly being used to store wood. The Google Maps section below shows the topside of the ammunitions bunker - every dead end on the roadways leads to a another storage bunker.

So...after much walking, falling, tripping, shitting and ripping (trousers, not assholes) we found what we were looking for...and boy it didn't disappoint!! On with the photos...

2. Each storage unit looked exactly the same. Only the one closest to the entrance was different in the way it was a double unit.

7. This was underneath the topside bunkers but above the main underground section - perhaps a plan for a second level? Or a failed attempt at the original entrance?

8. Bingo! The entrance tunnel

9. Just inside the entrance. All the levers throughout the complex still worked perfectly changing the line directions.
