August 9, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen today. We have another abandoned railroad here where just a block north of North West 20th Street on Northwest 12th Avenue here, we see the Metro rail there we see facing West at the track leads into that produce place and It’s are no longer active you can see the cars parking on it. You can see the crossing and then here We see the actual spur Or what’s left of it? This is an old CSX spur. Perhaps dating back to the SCL days Where the cars used to load the old wooden cross ties over here how beautiful Yep over there. We see some guys planting some trees So we’re walking East right now, and yeah, I got with the bulldozer right there. There’s no more rails there there’s oh That’s where they end. Here it’s barely noticeable. So yeah, and then let me give you a walk West from where we originally began filming See if we can see a date on the rail. 1924 there it is. I don’t know if you guys can see it? Backlight 1924 the rail says 1924 on it. Wow! See the Tie plate you can’t see a date on it Yeah, this is a old, this is SAL it not even a SCL. Seaboard Airline.

    if that rail is dated 1924 I don't think there's any way that that building is that old that rail must have been transplanted from another location

    Buses, school buses and tanker trucks still stop at that crossing and look both ways because state law requires all such vehicles to make a complete stop at railroad crossings. As long as there is a cross buck there which it is they must stop.

    Another good find! Got on Earth to look find this, when I went into street view it looked freshly cut, somebody cleaned it up. Did you go a block over to 11th Avenue? There should be two crossings, one for the spur and one for another section that went east a block. The USGS maps from the 50's and the 60's show a stub ended yard and a station just northeast of this spot, long gone. Your videos have inspired me to get out and look for stuff, took my grandson out yesterday morning and showed him some abandoned tracks, he acted like he was interested. He's 12, so he asked a lot of questions! Keep up the good work!

    I have an abandoned railroad about 10 minutes away from me, although my local railroad is still in service though.

    Here in California not much money in steel, if I could, I would move a section to my back yard near my garden railroad. I have some RR ties in the ground now just need a few feet of track. You can check out Big Boy 4014 The Movie. I followed the 4014 as it was rolled out from the Pomona Fair Grounds and back on the main line to get restored. I more or less camped out there as they rolled it out.

    Hmm..What is the name of this spur? Seeing a train on it (if I can find any videos) would be interesting.

  • Reply jds hempfarm April 22, 2018 at 12:43 pm

    We are so far behind and antiquated in train travel. You have given me a thought to contact my elected officials and ask WHY!?
    Our pitiful state cannot be for lack of demand.
