Abandoned Railroad Miami International Airport

August 11, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen today I’m
over here on Northwest 27th Street next to Lejeune Road just a block east of the
Miami International Airport and I discovered an abandoned seaboard line an
original seaboard line check this out so here is the warehouse right and then
you can see the rail right there that rail is an original seaboard rail focusing on it so it goes into those shrubs over there notice the closed off for receiving
doors so right now I’m walking east on this on the street and yeah things
probably buried under all that yeah yeah you can’t you can’t tell but yeah look
at the closed off receiving doors see if uh I’m optimistic that when this
shrub ends over there we’ll be able to see some more of it so yeah guys if you
go on historic aerials.com you can see the aerial view in the
70s when this track was active back then it was it would have been an SCL let me see hmm this is gonna be a tough
one, its here somewhere oh that I see them over there yeah okay see them over there so basically they’re right underneath here
you can see them that’s original Seaboard right there
guys you imagine the last time a train came
through here might have been 40 years ago ya think we are out of luck cause over there
still it’s paved over actually no here you can see one yeah guys that’s the end of it there’s
people over there so I don’t wanna intrude on their property so yeah I’ll include a link to this location. That’s the Tri Rail you can hear off in the
distance alright guys thank you for coming along
with me on this tour please subscribe or like thank you very much over and out

    Excellent find! I had no idea that existed. That street is a taxi cab graveyard. Thanks to Uber. Anybody want a cheap Crown Vic? 😏

    Thank you for mentioning www.historicaerials.com, just what I had been looking for to help understand the history of areas of US.
    Are there any other websites with detailed mapping for US?

    Awesome find! What a fascinating area to explore, those curved buildings where the spur turned back into the section to the east, the wye that was to the north, good stuff. Do you think that that fence guy that sunk that post right between those rails was like, "Uh, I hope the train doesn't come through and tear this down"? Keep up the good work!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seaboard-All_Florida_Railway Maybe this helps?

    Your videos make me question why much of south florida has stopped using rail for freight, so much potential for industry and rail freight was there. So many abandoned railroads, why?

    They just pave over the rail and don't try to recover it.
