It was a long, difficult and cold mission, but the rewards were great. This is the story of our visit to the turbine hall of the beautiful Rankine hydro power station… the hard way…
The year 2009 shall be remembered as the year of the Paris metro. For over twelve months, a loose group of like minded lunatics made it their mission to discover all the secrets hidden in the network of sprawling tunnels. But what to do when all the secrets which lurk in those tunnels are no longer a mystery…
Behind the thundering curtain of Niagara falls there is a tunnel, 10m tall, red brick lined and virtually inaccessible to all but the most determined explorers. This is my report on our exploration of the famous Toronto Power Company Hydroelectric Tailrace Tunnels in Niagara Falls, AKA: Confluence.
Squeezed between a train and the tunnel wall, just poking our heads over the level of the platform, all four of us eyed off the security camera at the far end of the phantom station. We had made it this far and we weren’t stopping now, this is Paris’ most converted abandoned metro station – Molitor.
It has been so long between posting expo reports on this part of the site that I don’t really know where to start… So I’ll start with something easy, a recent adventure to the La Rochelle (La Pallice) German U-boat bunkers in France.
Over the past year I’ve done things I never thought I’d do, I’ve pushed what I thought was possible, I spent time in the watch house, I’ve climbed national monuments and run through more train tunnels than I care to remember. I’ve risked everything for nothing and I loved every minute of it. Read the rest of this entry »
I’m that filthy guy in the metro people look at with mild contempt. Not a problem, I know it’s hard to understand why I’m covered in grime. But I’m that way because I don’t just wonder what is down those dark tunnels… I find out for myself.
The second of the elusive Parisian ghost stations to appear on this site. After a few obsessive attempts, I was finally lucky enough visit this great location and take a few photos. Enjoy.
