i like stuff
That is awesome, I like abandoned stuff, too.
Where is ithat? My buddy and I love going to abandoned places. If you are interested, take a look at his site. The pics of the places we have ben is under the My Pictures section. http://patrickhayes.org:8000/
where is that? I love to photograph abandonded equipment, buildings, and other such things. They are the only things I find inspiring to photograph(well besides cars).
some examples: http://www.mandic4x4.com/images/railroad/
its an abandoned building directly next to the railroad that runs around our area....theres tons and tons of them...some are like highly off limits tho it sucks...i have tons more
Here's an abandoned old chebby I found on the ranch I hunt.
nice ;D i would take that with me if i could, the truck...the other one aint to bad either haha
Checking out the old farms and farm equipment is one of my favorite things to do.... The other day I found a cool old all gear driven grain spreader that I would love to have.

I stole this pic from your webshots. I have pics of the same building I took in 1999! The quality is not that great here because I took a pic of my 3x5 print with a digital camera. I think there is also a pic of that place from the 1950s in one of my railroad books but I cant seem to find it right now.
I go around and take pics of abandoned stuff, usually railroad buildings, tunnels or factories. I usually make a day out of it. I have a ton of pics, I'll post a few.
heres a CLASSIC example of what I do, even though the results of this one are a little disapointing: In one of my railroad books it shows this tunnel in Catasaqua PA. I went there to see it, well it turns out it was filled in with dirt at some time. and it could not have been much of a tunnel anyway, it goes under the town for only about a block or two, it wasnt very long, the other end was filled in also. For those of you that live nearby, I think I took the pic from Front St and the road the white house is on is 2nd St (I think)
here are a two pics from one of my railroad books. these pics are from 1961. the train is coming out of the tunnel, you will see a grey house on the upper left- in my 1999 pic the house is now white in the, you can also see the top of the tunnel which is concrete, with an iron railing still on it. I outlined these in yellow
in the second set you can see the white houses on the right and the same row of houses in 1999
here is a poured concrete coal tower that was used to dump coal into the steam engines, this is near Bethlehem PA I was last there in 1999, it could be gone by now for all I know.
the second pic is another poured concrete building, this was an interlocking tower, this was a place where guys had levers to change the route of the trains. this one is in Lake Hopatcong NJ, there is one in Greendell, and there are at least 2 if not 3 more in PA also, I know there is one at the Water Gap. I've only been to the two in NJ. They are nice and cool inside on a hot summer day.
wow man thats crazy...that building is local to me, if you know where palmerton is you know we have all the zinc company buildings around the railroad...its all fenced off and if you break in and get caught the charges are taken to the fullest...theres alot of stuff in their i want to get into and see what its actually like, i take it you've visited jim thorpe?
I might have driven through jim thorpe, but I didnt take any pics, I was in a hurry to get home that day because I was going to meet up with this girl, then I got stood up. I never did make it back to Jim Thorpe. I want to head out to Nesquehoning and Lansford soon, there is a 3800 foot tunnel out there somewhere.
I attached a pic of that building from the 1940's It was a frieght car repair shop.
never heard of any tunnels like that in nesque...im gonna have to look into that i suppose
That would be a 1954 or 1955 1st series pick-up.
I used to have a 1954 pick-up. I don't like the grills in them though.
I think its between lasford and hauto

If the pics don't show go here http://www.angelfire.com/de2/detroitpix/
Its a great spot for people who like to look at pictures of dead cities .
And regardless of how some people say its not as bad as it is , I say the pics say otherwise
Great pictures guys. Reminds me of mine of Cleveland, OH. I wish I knew what I did with them. I've got some great ones of the old bridges and steel mills.
That one of the Detroit train station is great. I love the facades on buildings of that era. They are so much more interesting than today's glass & steel.
All these pics remind me of the movie hostel.
