Abandoned Railroad Walk Along Tour

August 11, 2019


Northwest 79th Avenue, Medley, Florida guys right next to Miami Another abandoned railroad right here this used to be part of the FEC. Was a industrial spur and I’m going to walk give you a tour Let’s see up to where it leads. I think it was cut short, just short of the main line over there You could still see some rails here. underneath the We got some cross ties here see if I can find the date no way More cross ties. Ain’t she a beauty! So right now, I’m walking South guys. I’m gonna include a link or Google Maps link For this location, so you guys can follow along here Here’s a rail right there At this point it becomes very submerged in dirt. Yeah over here Do not see any traces of it over here. It’s really really all here. This is one Here you go! Right off, about a block or so away you can see the crossing right there If you access some old Old maps online like old maps online dot org or historic aerials you can probably see When and where this track connected to the main? There’s a bend a bend curve up ahead Towards the left That would be towards the east. I’m walking to South right now. And here they paved over it on this side There you can see was cut off some time ago that time that cut is rusted so And guessing maybe like in the 90s you can see a tie plate and a spike, that thing is nobody’s taking that out And then yeah here you still you can see the curvature of the building they build the building after the railroad so it went a East there. There’s no like here. Maybe the rail cars used to load over here. The box cars. But yeah, there is no Trace of any rails at this point here there’s the Medley branch and Let’s see in this little overgrown shrub area. We can spot a rail or two No, just some concrete cross ties here. Yeah, they pulled everything over here nothing So again that’s facing East. See a switch here, zoom in Then there’s a spur that goes into that. It’s a Sears Outlet I believe. Then West You got some lovely cloudy skies today All right guys.

    you're walking in sandals in questionable weeds in tropical Florida? Not afraid of perhaps a snake bite?

    Surprised that haven't removed everything for mowing purposes. Glad they haven't.

    if you come north to wapak we got alot of abandon railroad sites are in three locations 1 fairgrounds east entrance just rails nothing special looks like a abnormal hill 2 CSXT depot has a boxcar and is cut off from the rest of the world 3 behind a trailer park on 33 you can see 2 passenger cars from 33 and it goes for a long while from the highway to a farm you see a old NYC and AMTK gold passenger car crane truck and on the other side bridge (be careful on it) old unmarked crossing old rollers ties get rare beyond old trucks and signal get off i75 and go towards the ta and keep going pass the freeway and turn towards the gun club

    The connection with the main line was removed sometime between May 26th and December 31st 2002. The curved building was put up sometime prior to February 21st 1999.
