The place is located in Sośnica, an eastern district of Gliwice. According to Google Maps it is some kind of rail yard. I was not sure if it is still used and if it is accessible.

[edit] Jajcus

As the site was too far to reach it on foot and as I am not allowed to bike, I planned to took a bus to get to Sośnica. As soon as I get off the bus I noticed a path in the approximately right direction, so I walked there. The path have soon disappeared in a grass, then another appeared. I have soon reached the abandoned and partially devastated rail yard. I had to walk about a kilometer through this rail yard until I get to the hash point.

Although most of the terrain was grass, stones and rails only, at the exact geohashing coordinates there were some bushes, so I missed the point a bit, but no more than five meters (it is about my GPS accuracy anyway).

Near the site the rails have been already stolen by some scrap metal thieves (it is a bit strange, that there are still a lot of rails on the other parts of the yard), but not everything has been stolen. Even some old coal carriages are still there.
