This attraction is very interesting! Many train wagons, locomotives and so on have been left in this place... the history is a bit debatable... but, anyway, nice place to visit! Go and enjoy it!

This was a very interesting place - be sure to get the history of it with a guide - otherwise just looks like a bunch of old trains. However - combined with the story it is a true historical event!

Just a nice place to walk around. Take photos and have fun with it. I think you can walk here from the town.
