166th kilometre labour camp

Atypical labour camp. Probably used in the maintenance of railway equipment.

A most atypical camp. It does not contain any sizeable residential buildings but rather the remnants of some kind of small wagons that may have provided accommodation for small numbers of prisoners. In expanse it is about half the size of regular labour camps and it possesses just one guard tower. A large building in the centre of the camp resembles a depot. The amount of tools and equipment suggests that railway equipment was repaired at this camp, while security was relatively very lax.
