Railroad Power House, East St. Louis


We stumbled across this abandoned power plant for the railroad tucked between the tracks and the interstate in East St. Louis. It will probably be there for a very long time, as it is very isolated.

The inside is fascinating; one of the smokestacks has actually fallen into the interior, crashing to the floor one day with presumably a very loud crash.

If a smokestack falls in East St. Louis, and nobody is around to hear it, does it still make a noise?
