I am not sure, but I think this section was a storehouse; it has two ramps that connect the rail yard outside and the blacksmith shop. On all of the historic doors that face that part of the yard, signs caution workers to look out for cars…
Looking through the an access panel at the hoist room for Shaft No. 3. The cable had long ago been scrapped, along with the motors to drive the pulleys. I still admire the workmanship on the spool’s arching metal shell.
An interesting crane in the back of the machine shop. It seems very light duty, so I am not certain what it was used for.
I was squatting overnight in one of the buildings and woke up with the sunrise. This is what I woke up to.
A door covered in pen graffiti.
Next to the pit in the maintenance shop is “The Wall”… where rail workers wrote about interesting happenings at Shoreham.
The Blacksmith Shop (right) was connected to the Bunk House (left) via this narrow walkway. This is likely due to the fire risk in each building. The left building had a cooking stove and furnace for heat and the right building had a small industrial furnace to repair mining equipment. A little walkway would mean that a fire on one side would be easier to fight from the other.
On the upper floors where the sunlight is yellow–the color of flour dust, once exposed to the elements.
A common room with a big bay window that overlooked the main entrance of the hospital.
