    It's a walk along the tracks from Holborn station.

    Edited:



    I'm not 100% but I think it was to move empty trains to the sidings.
    oh. i assume the sidings are not underground. where is the actual rail entrance and is it still used you think?

    The sidings are still used, yes. I don't know the answer to your other question.

    Look at the tracks. A train wouldn't be able come down one of those in a hurry.

    Trains can be heard from far away, especially in a silent tunnel like that, even if one manages to ''sneak'' up on him you can easily get out of the way.
    You would have to be a really big idiot to get hit.

    Yeah the rule is, if a train comes and there's no way of getting out the way in time, lay down as flat as possible by the tracks and you theoretically won't get hit.

    How the hell do you take pictures down there? There's an abandoned train tunnel that runs for over a mile under a city nearby that I've been meaning to check out, only problem is it's pitch black, even from the portals. All I have for a camera is a Canon SX10 IS and a few flashlights. It doesn't help that the actual tunnel is over 50 feet high and flooded with deep water.

    I don't know where the tunnel ends are, I was in the tunnel and didn't gain access through either of the ends. look at google maps.

    Rule of thumb,the ones hanging are stalactites as in hanging tits.
    Works for me.

    Edited:

    And they take a looooong time to develop so this is abandoned for quite a time now. (lets see the massive stalactites in a million years)
    I've always remembered it as:

    Stalactites = clings "tite" to the ceiling
    Stalagmites = watch or you "mite" trip on them

    But tits works.

    I remember because stalactite has c for ceiling and stalagmite has g for ground.

    This is so interesting, Urban exploration in general & this.

    I'm doing a Let's Play on Metro 2033 on my Youtube channel & actually going into a tunnel IN REAL LIFE & looking around at things just seems so interesting & must be a really unique experience.

    I'm from Australia, Not sure what would be good to Urban explore but i'm definitely going to look into it now.
