The photos were taken by the Comdig. They are urban explorers based in Russia. The Comdig has been documenting urban decay, industrial abandonments, and rural decomposition since 2010.
This tractor station was abandoned quite recently, as evidenced by the presence of not yet plundered agricultural machinery. On the walls of warehouse were fresh marks of fans of extreme night games. Some of the doors were broken, the panel boards were plundered for non-ferrous metal. Spare parts from equipment were scattered everywhere. Imagine the surprise — on the staircase to see the radiator grill from an old truck. I wonder who had the idea to bring and throw it on the stairs?
There were several rooms in the building. All of them were once inhabited and used as repair shops. But alas, all the most valuable things have long been taken out, and in the corridor lied a huge drill, which someone did not carry.
From the second floor there was a view of the premises where the tractors stood, just from the time when my friend spent his childhood here. This picture made him even sadder. After all, he remembers how everything was whole here. And now — lost and useless to anyone. There was a possibility that all tractors can be given a second life, because all the main components, including the engines, remained in place. But no one will fix all this. Very expensive. It’s easier to build a new station and buy new equipment.
