Abandoned Railroad & Crossing

August 24, 2019


all right ladies gentlemen RailROL82 again, we’re continuing our tour on the CSX downtown Miami spur, I’m not
an expert on E bell so you guys could correct me if I’m wrong but I think this
is a type one e bell like I said my Forte’s in mechanical bell so you guys have a
car for sale there you have the relay case and then I remember in the 1980s I
used to drive thru here as a kid this used to be a WRRS cantilever
crossing with the small the cantilevers where like half of that like maybe up to
here so this was replaced sometime in the 90s or 2000s there you have the
emergency contact info foundation cracking many places Lincoln industries
signal base safe tran gate mechanism safe tran lights are around
Rico lights are now crossing gate these lights are also safe turn up top This is track view East towards downtown miami track view west toward hialeah and you can see this spur that came off and it ends ended right here, it’s a cross tie right
there okay this is a pretty busy street let me see
if I can give you the tour from this side okay yeah so here we have safe Tran lights up top I guess that would be another generation E bell as
opposed to the one that’s above me save tran lights there wc hayes gate mechanism Rico lights on the crossing gate and as I said track view West previously there used to be some Spurs
that went that they merged going that way I’m gonna show you them right now
okay so you have a perspective that’s the crossing right and then this is
Northwest 22nd a view and 22nd Street and this is where the Spurs that I just
told you about went into these were taken off many years ago but they’re still
visible at what used to be the grade crossing so I’m walking east on 22nd
Street and then right here you can see railroad archaeology at its finest guys
look at that so they went over there and to that warehouse and then you can see the loading docks
right over there and then I’m gonna show you over here so
again this there’s the rails and you can see the curvature it’s built at an angle
to accommodate the railroad which was probably here first all right you guys
so thank you for viewing Please subscribe or like take care
over and out
