Channel Tunnel Airlock Door

Not much of a story here - it's one of the Chunnel's airlock doors for the maintenance tunnel between the rail tubes.  The hydro-mechanical stuff and hinges are obviously awesome looking, but I thought it could serve as inspiration for some of the technical space work Ian's been doing.


  1. This reminded me of a shoot I assisted on where we were working with a company who provided data management for a major credit card company. Due to the amount of money being moved every second, the losses associated with being down even for a second or two were insane. In the millions! To prevent this? two 16 cylinder turbo Detroit Diesels as backup generators. I couldn't find a good shot but found this site I figured you'd all like. Enjoy!
