Forgive the flaming pile of garbage that is my old camera.

We only got to go in a single section of these sketchy-ass tunnels, but it was super cool. There wasn't always concrete to walk on, so we balanced along pipes and the old rails. Your footing needed to be perfect, or you'd slip into the blackness below. In some spots, the rails were on supports that looked over 20ft tall... Plenty of ways to die in there.

By single section, do you mean it was blocked off?

I mean that the tunnels kept going, but the section we traversed went from one entrance (stairs+ladder) to one exit (ladder with uninsulated power cables hanging adjacent), and that's all we did. I don't think anyone knew if there was a viable exit further down.
