Can you give us more info? Other than the fact that these appears to be parts and pieces of an electric train, I have no context. What is the significance? Nice photos BTW, and excellent processing.Spending my shelter at home going through my 2016 backlog. This visit came two years after my first, and I was appalled at the destruction from vandalism. Almost didn't take any pictures, and it's not until four years after that I could commit to posting anything from the set. Besides the deep disappointment with how the site had been treated, I struggled with how to process the images. I generally try not to play too much with color, preferring to document the way a site actually looks, but in this case an expired film treatment helped tame the subject matter and harsh lighting, anyway enough for me to put this behind me.

Thanks. My understanding is the gentleman who owns this property ran a trolley restoration business for some years. He sourced trolleys from all over the country and I believe his restorations are in museums and perhaps some are still in service. When I first visited in 2014 the site was still a well-kept secret, there was very little graffiti to speak of, and most windows were intact. Just two years later, hardly any windows remained, vandalism was rampant with indiscriminate and inartful tagging. I really felt physically ill when I saw the site the second time, wish I hadn't waited so long to return.Can you give us more info?

Me too.. I found another one with little left, on the north bank of the Salt River in Phoenix west of 67th. Ave.. Both shot with my EM1.3 and Oly Pro 12-40/2.8, handheld and using HHHR, which I LOVE.Man I hate to see beautiful old homes in this sad state. I love history, old architecture. I look at a house like that and wonder about the people that lived there, the families, the kids who grew up there.
^^^^^ Those are brilliant. The tanks are particularly odd, and the landscape is ghostly. Well done.
