Now in total silence.

Lovely shot Steve. The silence is almost deafening. It reminds me a little of visiting the Midland railways workshops, here in WA. They were once packed with hundreds of workers building, servicing and repairing carriages and locomotives. All fire, smoke and noise. But now empty. At least they haven't knocked them down yet and there is still some interesting old equipment to be seen there.

Similar view below - but not as striking as yours though.
