RAW M (Germany)

This Reichsbahnausbesserungswerk (RAW), a large workshop where locomotives were repaired and serviced, dates back to the 1890s. The impressive maintenance hall with no less than 45 tracks makes it one of Germany’s largest RAW’s. The workshop even had its own small power station. Nowadays the offices, the repair- and maintenance halls and the power station are left to rot.

Sabena Plane (Belgium)

Abandoned Boeing 707. The airplane was first registered in 1961 by international air carrier PanAm (Pan American Airlines) and was later on sold to the government of Benin. Legend has it that this plane was used to train cabin cleaning staff. Now, it stands deserted on the flat, concrete grounds of a large parking lot in a rural Belgian village.

Gare de Hombourg (Belgium)

The railway lines at the Gare de Hombourg were already constructed before 1900. In 1940, during WW2, the German Army used the station and the tracks for the connection between Belgium and Aachen. After the war, Belgians started using the station and its tracks again until it was closed for passengers (in 1957) and freights (in 1962). In 1992, the tracks were demolished and the station was left abandoned. Today the tracks have been rebuilt and the station has been reconverted to a restaurant. The old rusty trains will be restored to become part of a railway museum.
