Abandoned Railroad Being Restored

August 15, 2019

Hello ladies and gentlemen, so this is the before as you can see the rails were buried here in this picture. And in this picture, they used this track as a parking lot. You can see all the vehicles that are parked on it. But welcome to 2017! Here we see the first crossing. It has no gate, just lights and a cross buck. Here we see the emergency contact info. And we’re going to see a Safetran signal base here. And this is where the track used to be. You can see off to the right side there that there’s some cross ties they’re going to lay for the new track. This is going to be utilized for the Brightline now. So it can give, it can facilitate rail traffic in this area. This is looking East That’s looking South. This is looking North here. And this is where the spur used to come from the CSX main known as the SFRTA here in South FL. You can see the relay case off to the left there. And You can see this is where the train traffic stopped. And here we can see the crossing number 2. with the emergency contact info here And a Safetran signal base as well, no correction this is Modern Industries. A modern industries signal base. You can see lights are Safetran Cross buck up there. And there you see the where the track traffic stopped. This is where they’re going to lay the new track-age now. There’s the old relay case. Like I said, this is going to be used for Brightline. Please Subscribe or Like! Thank you very much for viewing. Over and out.

    You should consider posting links to Google Maps with locations in your descriptions.

    Some good news for change! I wonder if the crossing will stay gateless even with Brightline using it. Awesome video as always, glad to see someone doing an in-depth coverage of Florida's Railroads! 🙂

    YouTube just started working again for me so I am a little late. Warms me up to see that it may be reactivated, will only the Brightline run on this or freight? Thanks for the video and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Try to start an abandoned crossing

  • Reply TolgaEastCoast June 16, 2017 at 8:26 pm

    Brightline is NOT using this track. This is supposedly slated to be a freight or Tri-Rail connection.

    did you know that most CSX lines used to be owned by the L&N

  • Reply Butt Sex June 28, 2017 at 4:07 am

    you should find out when they start this and film them doing it if they let you.

    wow when it's gone it's really gone, CSX did the L and N like cleared it up so quickly never it was there after they abandoned it thanks 😊

    Wish they'd restore the tracks in New Hampshire, we still have a good chunk of the Concord to Penacook, Franklin, Tilton, and Laconia that's still there and with work could very easily be reactivated.

    how about an update?

  • Reply Mel Perry November 2, 2017 at 11:43 pm

    where is this line going to?

  • Reply Shawn Stephens December 11, 2017 at 9:18 pm

    You must get videos of the first train on it. Its great to see lines come back into service. I love your video of abandoned lines, siding, and clossing. But I do get a little sad that they r not used. So this is a great story. Please keep us informed. Thanks.

    Cool that you got to film it in progress. That would be really cool to film Brightline train going through and put the two videos together.
