3 Unused Railroad Crossing Drive Along Tour

August 26, 2019


Okay guys so I’m on Kings Highway and
I’m going to give you a tour of the end of the CSX S line. This, here we’re coming up on the crossing. This is going to be Northwest 10th Ave and these are the tracks right here. This is an old SAL, old Seaboard
line it is now CSX but CSX hasn’t ran a train
through here for years and nor do they have any plans to send another one, so
right now I’m headed southbound on 10th Avenue you can see in some parts
it’s there’s litter all over it that dead chickens, branches we’re coming up on a milepost here
that’s a milepost 66 it says, I think it says end Homestead block I couldn’t tell with all the graffiti behind it. Relay case This is another crossing I believe this is Campbell Dr so in there the track curves and then
there’s the old abandoned SAL station. It goes between those shrubs
there. You’re going to be able to see it you got to see there’s a spur coming up
there to the left is abandoned Train station built in the 1920s and
that’s where all the tourists used to disembark and then here is abandoned
spur, let me show you the train station and there’s the spur I actually have a video on this crossing
that I did a walkthrough this is where the spur this ends and then right
there there’s a wye you can see the switch in the distance
I’m going to make a left here as soon as this guy passes. You can see the
switch next to the crossing there and floor it okay I’m going to include a link for the video
that’s at the end of the track so you can see what it looks like the last
crossing it’s actually the last crossing in the United States and the end of the
CSX s line so please subscribe or like thank you for viewing guys over and out

    wow just left to rot

    Don't you hate it when you're trying to rail-fan, and some jerk's riding your bumper? Good stuff, I've become fascinated with that area since I ran across your videos! It's so sad to see the evidence of the great industrial revolution that happened in our country just cast to the side and left to rot. Keep documenting your part of the world for us, I for one appreciate it! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    For a line that isn't used, it doesn't look too bad.

    Nice video!
    How do you find all these old railroads?
    Do you use google maps for finding them?

    I Actually Visited the old Seaboard Station last year, It's not in a Good Neighborhood I'll tell you!

    Nice video Rolly! Loved the tour. It's always interesting. Maybe one day your videos will be more in-depth and longer like some of the TV shows. Thanks, you really bring all this to surface for everyone. I support you in this endeavor and I truly appreciate all your efforts and time spent not seen in these videos. Yea, a thirty minute youtube Railroad Archaeology TV program. Nice ring to it! Sounds great! Eh? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Reply Colt Connor productions December 23, 2017 at 7:54 pm

    Maybe you can get the old stop dismount sign
    On that abandoned spur?

  • Reply Douglas Chapman December 23, 2017 at 11:36 pm

    This is the line that goes to Homestead and CSX does not send a train down there anymore at all

    Good video. Have a Merry Christmas!

    There might be a theory about the abandoned CSX Rail lines, they might come back alive or not.

  • Reply Dead-End Productions [MTR] December 24, 2017 at 5:43 am

    It sucks to see abandoned tracks be left out to sit in the dust to grow weed and grass all over. It just makes no sense for a railroad to spend hundreds of dollars on a railroad crossing or a trackside signal, then to just let it rust away. Breaks my heart. Nice video btw. Love your "Unused railroad crossing" series. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kind of eery, like walking next to an abandoned old mansion. Its rather a nostalgic feeling of what if these tracks could be used again, a trolley car? What if, by a miracle say Trump hands out a billion dollars and says bring back the Flagler Trains to Key West? I have been to Australia and have seen how proud the people were of their beloved steam trains, they line up and wave at the crossings! I was there! Bring it back to America again. Bring back the nostalgia of trains.

    I went to California and I saw some train tracks used as supports for a road bumper. A good use for old tracks

    Very nice!

    I have a feeling that another train will come in 2019

  • Reply Ivan the raging gamer November 24, 2018 at 5:10 am

    3/4 of the unused but not abandoned railroads will see traffic in the future like when an unused spur about 2 miles away from my house was unused for 5 years (2013-2018) it was unused but saw a train 4 months ago from when I posted this and sees a train 2 Times a week or less but is still something and there is hope for that crossing and I hope ๐Ÿคž so. Also part of my model train is based on those three crossings and is almost like the real real one without dead chickens ๐Ÿ“ and without the third signals/crossing. So coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!!!

    Awesome ๐Ÿ˜Ž and my favorite YouTube channel!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฉ

  • Reply Ivan the raging gamer November 28, 2018 at 6:34 pm

    Iโ€™m really upset ๐Ÿ˜ข I was hoping to see a train thru there

  • Reply Ivan the raging gamer November 28, 2018 at 6:36 pm

    These are cool crossing signals with 3 signals

  • Reply Ivan the raging gamer November 28, 2018 at 6:37 pm

    I allow it to be used in my dreams

    I live in California even though Florida is my favorite state place. I wish I lived in Florida and I have been there a few times

    Very sadly a us&s tear drop bell was recently replaced with an e-bell last year. I have never seen it operate because the train usually doesnโ€™t come until 2:00am twice a week. I have an e-bell I got for Christmas one year and it is the same type as the one on those crossings and it is big

  • Reply Ivan the raging gamer November 28, 2018 at 6:52 pm

    Maybe by chance they are upgrading the crossings to LED and gates could that be possible?

  • Reply Shawn Powell December 11, 2018 at 8:53 am

    dead chickens? Strange. But awesome video, looking forward to seeing more.
