Urban Explore

Derelict Pullman Cars

The task at hand this morning would be to explore two old Pullman railway cars.

Written on the train was the words "Great Northern." Looking at the rear car, there were obvious signs of fire damage. The inside would later confirm it. Access to the first car was out of the question. It was padlocked, the windows were boarded up and it was so high up, you'd need a ladder or have Spiderman like capabilities. They also welded metal pieces on the doors.

There was another abandoned train behind us and so we went to explore that as well, but I will share those pictures with you in the near future. Hope you enjoyed this session of urban exploration.

Derelict Pullman Cars in Portland, OR - part 2

zind4gi and I went out to NW Portland before dawn today to shoot the derelict Pullman cars in more detail. There were two cars, old Great Northern rolling stock that seemed to have been through several subsequent half-lives. One of the cars had sustained a bad fire in place sometime in the past. The other was firmly padlocked, with one end welded shut. Collapse )
