I found a smaller side gate that looked approachable.
There was this security feature, but judging by how it's screwed in there, it's probably a decoy.
Looking back the way I came, you can see the weakness of this gate is apparent: the walls around it are easy to scale.
On the other side, I saw what looked like a house in front of a temple-like building.
Here's that gate from the other side.
I wanted to play it safe because this isn't a typical abandonment, so I left the property (or what I perceived it to be) and hiked up the hill behind a little ways. From here I could see the house which might be more like a nicely decorated trailer, and saw it was behind a large concrete platform.
Further along, I saw this Hanok on the other side of a traditional wall.
That little bridge leading to the space under the boulder isn't an entrance. It leads to a spring.
On the other side of that entrance is a sizeable pond.
Here's the back of the Hanok. You can kind of see it's stacked with boxes inside. I didn't feel much like getting any closer.
The terrain up here was slanted and hidden by a soft canopy of green, which made it a little complicated to find my footing.
I came across some sandbags.
And there's the train.
For the first time, I came around to see it from the other side.
The symbol appears to be a variant of the Chinese National Railway logo.
I decided I should go up to the second floor of that concrete shell.
To take this picture.
On my way back, I wanted to get closer to the two stone bridges, but I thought I heard a door slam so I left quickly. When I came out I found this car parked here, which could have been there because of me.
Here is the other massive concrete gate out front.
