The lower portal of the Selby Tunnel, as it looks today. The area is a popular spot for homeless to camp–can you spot the tent?
A tunnel between the outside gate and the courtyard shared by the barracks.
I didn’t test the rungs, but I bet the view was incredible.

One of the covered rail loading docks. All of them were overgrown and rust-clad.
