Abandoned Railroad Industrial Spur Hollywood Florida

August 14, 2019


hello ladies and gentlemen I’m over here on
Dixie Highway just one block N of Taft and there’s an abandoned industrial
spur here that i just found. Here you can see where it used to come off the
main line. This is facing North. You can see the ties here and over here you can see the
actual spur. there’s a rail to my right. It used to come this way South
South bound see it wasn’t standard clearance I’m guessing it’s been abandoned for a
while because I don’t even see faces of of the crossing gate or cross bucks
anything no signal box so it goes there it goes south here
across dixie highway and then i go it just goes into that Sidewalk they pick
that they paved over it with the sidewalk in other words, they put the sidewalk
over it yeah there’s no traces anywhere no pavement marking so been abandoned
for a while alright guys i’m waiting for a train here give you a quick shot of
the railroad crossing over here on taft and then they’re also going to be
replacing those the rails here I see because a few blocks South, thiey bought some ties
new concrete ties there and they removing some of the old wooden ties and I also
see some some rails up right so yeah this is all a quick shot again of the
spur walking north again alrighty guys well
please remember to like subscribe or share and I thank you very much for viewing bye

    That track used to service A.D. Weiss printing company and continued south to a lumber company!

    If I had the money and the space, you bet I'd offer to buy that track!
    I'd use it to make a "backyard railroad", similar to this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=simR8778COU

    Awesome Video!

    According to Google Street View, this crossing had 3 gated signals and 2 Crossbucks as early as July 2014. Looks like they were removed between July 2014 and May 2015.

    My great grand dad worked for the FEC for 57 yrs

    Seems like FEC never had much interest in customers shipping less than 1,000 carloads a year even if their sidings were directly next to the main. Yet all big railroads are like that.
