Item #: SCP-XXXX


The entrance to SCP-XXXX.

Special Containment Procedures: The property on which SCP-XXXX is located has been purchased by the Foundation and cordoned off as a condemned building site. Access to SCP-XXXX itself is restricted to personnel possessing Level 4 Clearance and higher, or otherwise appropriate authorization.

Description: SCP-XXXX denotes a facility accessible through a doorway located on the premises of the now-decommissioned orphanage and social work office complex named "St. James Home For Displaced Youth," located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Upon passing through this door, personnel will enter SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX measures 3 kilometers long by 6 meters wide, and appears to lack a ceiling1. Along the walls of the space are regularly spaced chambers inset into the walls, consisting of steel interiors equipped with internal lighting and a large window for viewing; these also serve as the only light source within the room. These tanks repeat down the entire length of SCP-XXXX, as well as an undefined distance vertically. Exploration of the upper reaches of the space using long range drones has determined that at least 40 million such tanks are present within SCP-XXXX.

Inside of each tank is a coffin-shaped mass of flesh, bone, and ossified tissue suspended in a clear solution. Various electrodes, medical monitoring sensors, and a nutritional IV tubes attach to each instance and connect to a small port at the back of the chamber. All attempts to break viewing windows or scan through them to further study these objects have failed. Personnel in close proximity to instances for an extended period of time report auditory hallucinations of crying from somewhere within SCP-XXXX which increases in severity and volume the longer they are in proximity to that instance; audio recording equipment has not been able to detect such noises.

These objects have been observed to periodically vanish from their tanks before being replaced by a new instance within an average span of 12 72 hours2. New SCP-XXXX-1 instances typically vary slightly in size and skin tone, and occasionally exhibit small blemishes or patches of scar tissue.
