Tour Report: Railyard SP

In September 2019, I set off with my buddy "Lost Places in Schleswig-Holstein und Umland" to explore a few abandoned places in north-eastern Germany.
The first place we went to - a former railroad depot - I had already looked at from the outside with my wife, but hadn't found an entrance back then. This time, however, there was an opening!
But first things first: The old depot is located more or less directly in the city center between the active railroad tracks and a busy main road. Part of it has been converted into a museum, and the surrounding areas have been developed with residential and commercial buildings.
A short distance away in the residential area, we found an unsuspicious parking lot from where we began our exploration.
Unfortunately, there was no guaranteed way of getting into the engine shed without being seen, so once again we adopted the "cheek wins out" approach.
On the side facing the road, we finally found a narrow entrance through which we were able to squeeze in. We just hoped that no one had seen us doing our contortions.
Unfortunately, the site was actually so well secured that we could only see the roundhouse. Decay had done a great job - collapsed roofs and collapsed walls dominated the picture. My buddy managed to climb into another area (he's quite a bit taller than me), but even there he was met with a similar sight.
Unlike many other locations in the region, there was no garbage. Apparently the security measures had meant that local residents were unable to illegally dispose of their garbage on the site.
So we were able to enjoy the warm late summer day in peace and quiet with a great light atmosphere.
After about an hour, we made our way to the next location.
