Back on track

quality never goes out of style

Abandoned transportation, from cars, plains ’till unbelievable machinery. You’ll encounter them while urban exploring. Some cars will be covered with mos, some will be rusted, some are houses for new habitation.

Back on Track

The last 100 years our worldwide transport has taken a flight. So hard that the most beautiful transportation objects will be replaced in a matter of time. Not just cars; even trains, plains and industrial transportation. Along the road I’ve been travelling I’ll find some beautys “laying” around. The best vehicles are the ones that are timeless. 

Well in some cases “quality never goes out of style”

Black Hole Beast aka the Beast

Some years ago I visited this beautiful digger. Set in an industrial department of this country. An abandoned since de. 2018. At this point “the Beast” is heavily secured.

Out in the fields on a military site, you will find this lost seagull (as we call them). Well there are two of them in that field. Better watch out where to step …..

Out in the field, covered by green. A beautiful old Simca, this car has been standing here for the last decade. Within new life is been born ….. mice!

An old abandoned garage next tot the road. Within you’ll find this lady red bug. The bugs are very famous in Europe and built by the German’s more than 70 years ago.

Formerly a school bus, this bus was used just after the disaster back in 1986, deporting hundred  citizens of Pripyat.

Down in the outskirts, really hidden and covered with bushes…. a golden [or brown] Peugeot 403. Build back in 1966

403

In the garden of a lovely abandoned villa, I found this beauty. Still remember them from the old days when I saw them driving on the highway. This covered in moss…. lovely.

My friend Riou told me about this car. This is an Citroen HY.
The Citroën Type H – as the original French name is – is a design by Citroën, under which various variants, including the HY as the most famous, were produced between 1947 and 1982. This type was the successor of the TUB (Traction Utilitairé de type B). Popularly, this type is also called Citroën HY or Citroën H Van (English name). With its characteristic ‘corrugated sheet body’, the H was a well-known appearance in Europe. The car remained virtually unchanged in production for 34 years, a record for a van.

encounter abandoned castles

Some of the most fascinating people in history are the great kings and leaders. This is partly due to the fact that they’re usually well documented in history, but they also often had larger-than-life personas. A king is an authority unto himself, and is thus often depicted as a figure well above a mere mortal. The legends of these kings have long captured our imaginations.

But have they been royals / kings or are they self named kings ….
