  •  Interesting Features
    Large factory, multiple cranes, ladders, walkways, holes, inspirational work signs and various other common industrial finds. Not much in the way of machines / leftovers though. Still has electricity.

    Alarm goes off sporadicly, it managed to chase Axle off and I don't blame him. After a follow up trip we were at the Bronte GO Station leaving and heard the alarm blaring for maybe 5 seconds? No idea what it is or why it goes off but it should be ignored. IT'S VERY LOUD.
