The railyard that we had chosen as our second location before driving home was only a couple of minutes away from the repair factory. A short ride across town and we were there.
After a few minutes, we had spotted a way in. We parked down the street and walked back to the access. We just had to walk past a couple of buildings, down some stairs, and we were on the premises.
What we found was not particularly spectacular, but due to the great weather, we managed to get some nice shots out of an otherwise rather normal railyard.
What made this excursion special for me was that it once again showed me one of the great sides of this hobby. Coming from the city, I rarely get the chance to see animals in their natural surroundings, especially endangered ones.
The appearance of endangered species in front of me while exploring an abandoned building is something that I really like. It shows how powerful nature is in conquering places that people have left alone.
In this particular place I saw a fire salamander and a grass snake. They each quickly disappeared into the undergrowth, so there was no time to get a photo, but it was a unique moment for me nonetheless.
