Railroad Power House, East St. Louis

100_3875

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?
