Abandoned Railroad Crossing Railroad Archaeology

August 25, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen another
abandoned railroad crossing here in North Miami, I’ll include a Google Maps
link cuz I’m not sure I’ve been driving around this little industrial so
I’m not sure the Avenue but I’ll find it on Google Maps and include a link down
below so let’s see so here the sidewalk ends right this is
facing south this would be facing north this would have been an industrial spur
and then this facing this is facing east see we see no traces of trail of rails
or spikes they probably see yeah they removed a cross buck on both
sides, there’s a car coming let him pass on that side I don’t see the location of the cross buck either
where it was so yeah I just went right in here It’s a jungle in there This is facing north so this is pretty
much like all we see here just these the grade that’s it see uh Oh trying to dig for it but you can’t
see them there how unfortunate and I’m gonna try to see my intuition
tells me that crossbuck would have been somewhere around here but nope
that was probably taken out so long ago all righty guys please subscribe or like
thank you very much for viewing over and out

    While I was researching this area in the last video, I came across this crossing along with another that had crossbuck the last time Google passed by. Excellent Video as always!

    it's a shame seeing so much rail being killed, where did all the business go that needed these connections?

    That area is known as the Sunshine State Industrial Park. Trains came through that area up until the late 80s early 90s mainly to take manufactured products out rather then bring items in. Most of those businesses were small factories making components for electronics as well as manufacturing garments. 30 years ago that area and Hialeah was the home of many small factories and Dade County had a strong manufacturing base. Today hardly anything is 'manufactured' in Dade County. Most everything comes through the Port of Miami and is delivered by truck to its final destination. Very few products are shipped out from this area. Victims of globalization and relocation of manufacturing jobs overseas.

    Another good find, ashamed that you have to explore that from both ends. Makes me want to get out a chainsaw, cut some trees and let those rails see the sunshine. I can't really tell from Google Earth or USGS maps, but was there a main spur that headed west, with sidings on both the north and south sides of it? Wonder if the switch stands are in that jungle, though the one on the east end of the spur was removed. Keep up the good work, and you're killing me with the #railrol82 mobile!
