I got a new camera so had to bring it along when visiting Alex today; figured I'd update this thread with some new pictures.

First, the grounds.









Alex:



During one of his visits last year, Alex finished getting the hydraulic ram for one of the doors hooked up, and closed the door. So at the moment only one door is open.















Heading downstairs...









Hydraulic ram installed inside the closed door:



Various shots of Level 3. I didn't venture any farther down because the water level is really high at present.



























And up to the LCC:

Very intriguing, beyond a labor of love fixing up one of those installations.
The asbestos levels inside there must be off the charts!
All of the insulated pipes are wrapped with it.
