The city, which had abandoned the object that received rail service in 1877, when he completed the so-called "railroad Przywiślańska". The city was embodied to the confiscation of Russian and called them Iwanogród. It was an important railway junction between Warsaw and Lublin, but the city in its heyday, of course, already behind. On previous use resembles the size of the train station and still remained mostly unused abandoned rail facilities.

One of them is built next to a small freight station and descended popadająca useless big wachlarzowa in the form of a wheel, lokomotywownia. Despite the fact that everything else looks solid enough, more and more falling apart. Her fate, however, it is, rather, decided - probably will soon disappear from the face of the earth, dividing the fate of many such, now-defunct railway facilities. Lokomotywownia was established nearly seventy years after here ways (1943 - 1944), and the heyday of this railway junction came in the second half of the twentieth century.

Here are the photos supplied by Eduard Senkevich, who for over forty years he worked in the locomotive depot. As he describes his story and the attached photos:

On the train I went for about 5 years. Later I travelled by train to driving passenger trains, such as OL49-33, OL49-39. I was directed to the training of locomotive driver until then.

After the said training and subsequent practice on elektrowozie, Mr. Senkevich went to the capital the theoretical rate of the machinist of an electric locomotive, on which he rode to the elektrowozie until retirement in 1992. The locomotive depot was closed six years later (1998), and the adjacent office building, sometime in 2009. Since then, this abandoned object, and is destroyed and collapses.

Love all the pics, especially the trains. Would like to be able to visit some of these places but the budget says otherwise, so I am stuck with looking at pics on the internet and google earth. I understand and respect that you don't publish the locations of your finds, it stops the looters for the most part. Here in the US if someone finds an abandoned place, they think that is an open invitation to trash the place, that's why there aren't many nice abandoned places to visit over here.

My travels.

As you may have noticed, nothing on this site has been added for some time. But no, I did not leave this project, I'm just busy with others. Currently I am building a website called Fshoq!, where I'm writing a travel blog, where you can find both my new and those old adventures. So if you are waiting for more of my texts or pictures, this is the place I think it is worth looking into. After I will make Fshoq! site more popular, I'm going to get back to Into the Shadows, as I'm having more and more explorations of abandoned places to describe. Meanwhile, see you later!
