Abandoned Railroad CSX McCoy Air Force Base Spur Orlando, Florida 3

August 14, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, I thank you for watching the 3rd part of my CSX abandoned industrial spur in Orlando. As l said in my first video, this one used to serve the McCoy Air Force Base. From the 1940s to the 1970s. Here I am going to be looking East If you guys catch my part 2 of this video, the previous video I made to this one, you can see where this track meets Avenue C just about a mile or so down that way Again, that’s East. Then here again we can see no traces of crossing signals or signal boxes, anything of that nature. Now, I’m going to walk you West where the track ends. See over here you can still catch some ties. wooden ties at that. They built a residential neighborhood just off to the side here. Again, I’m walking Westward. Toward the mainline which is a couple of miles away. And as you can see, it just goes into the big shrubs over there and you can’t really make out the rest of it. So yeah guys, Once again, that’s CSX McCoy Air Force Base Spur. That was in use from the 1940s to the 1970s. I thank you very much for viewing and please subscribe, like, or share this video. Thank you very much guys. bye. bye.

    Check the ends of the wood cross ties and look for a dime sized nail with a date on it! Like 57, 63, etc. Thatshow old the cross ties are.

    When I was in Boynton Beach, Florida to visited my parents' winter home there for the week of March 1 to 8, 1981. On March 2nd of that year I rode on the Chessie Steam Special behind the steam engine #614 from West Palm Beach to Orlando. Upon arrival in Orlando that evening. The train made a reverse move on the Mc Coy AFB spur to layover for the night. I took the Amtrak Silver Star from Orlando back to West Palm Beach on March 3, 1981.
