Abandoned Railroad Switch & Spur FEC Miami, Florida

August 13, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, you guys are looking at an abandoned FEC spur and switch over here, just North of SW 8th ST There is the switch right there. And here is where the spur began. This actually used to go into a lumber yard. That was between SW 4th ST and SW 8th ST. It was just South of SW 4th ST and just North of SW 8th ST It is now replaced with a Wal-Mart And the spur used to go into here. To the side of the lumber yard. It’s truly a sad site. The FEC used to be a pretty abundant around here. It used to go all the way to US 1 Southbound over there and it met up with the mainline that ran parallel to US 1 all the way to Homestead Southward which was also the Overseas Railroad In 2004, it ran all the way to Bird Rd. And then as of 2004 this way the rails barely been used. Because there’s no more customers on the line. So yeah guys as you can see there you go. one last look at the spur. So that’s Southbound, SW 8th ST which the crossing gates and cantilevers are currently being removed I have a video on it if you guys want to check it out. And then SW 4th ST over there. facing North. Alright guys, please subscribe, like, or share. Thank you for viewing. Bye bye
