Abandoned Railroad Reclaimed by Nature

August 27, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here. We’ve got another abandoned railroad crossing as you can
see I still got some more of these from the last time on me okay so I’m going to include a google
maps link to my location down in the description This is where the spur went into this is the last trace of it then that
this goes from here this is facing East now facing
East No cross bucks, nothing I think that rail now I am facing west
and that’s where I began filming originally over there see how the sidewalk was built to accommodate the the railroad this would have been either
I don’t know if CSX was the last one to use it or seaboard incredible huh? so yeah guys I’m gonna include a Google
map link and then I’m going to walk over here so you guys know what where the
last rail goes or the last visible rail anyways so this side too, they built the
sidewalk to accommodate the railroad and zoom in here yeah one little clue though that might help us date this back, as you know as we are railroad archaeologist I noticed that this this
light post was installed October 1977 so if this industrial park was established
around 1977 it’s safe to say that this spur was probably put in around that
time all right guys. Please subscribe or like
thank you very much for viewing over and out.

    I give Florida credit they atleast leave alot of their tracks in place. Our area removes them quick or so i noticed. There are a few exceptions. There's an alley Track in Peoria that I'd like to do one day that hasn't been used in a good two decades or the Kellar Branch and what remains of that. Both track still remain in areas. Looks like it's decent weather down there and still warm. Another plus of Florida. lol. Great video. Keep it up!

    That industrial park AKA Sunshine State Industrial Park was there probably well before 1977. That concrete light pole was probably replacing an older wooden pole. I remember one of my aunts (Aunt Evelyn, God rest her soul) worked at a factory in that park before 1977 and the factory she worked at had some age on it then.

    Sad to see direct Rail-to-Warehouse Service decline. Railroads have lost their will for local service and instead look for long-distance bulk freight ๐Ÿ™
