Talk about spooky!

I had the day off from work today, and although a bit stuffy from a cold, I decided to head over to one of the neighboring towns to check out a really cool spot a friend of mine had told me about. This section of the train station has laid abandoned for at least 20 years (there is a small section that is still used further down the road). Although very dilapidated, many of the old trains still sit there. It was actually very creepy. You can tell that many transients must have used this place as a temporary "home" or a place to do illegal acts without getting caught, at some point or another.

I am actually quite surprised that this place is so accessible and that there are virtually no "no trespassing" signs. The old train station building is now a night club you people pretty much have to go by all of these dilapidated trains to get to it... so strange.

I didn't get a chance to get a close-up view of all of the train cares (I was honestly too freaked out to venture too far off the road) but I definitely plan on going back again

How gorgeous is the detailing on this door?!

What...? Doesn't everyone bring a shopping cart onto the train before the board? lol
