Closed Railroad Crossing & Kids/Mother Walking on Track

August 11, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, today I’m going to show you guys a closed railroad crossing. I’m over here in NW 12th ST and NW 137th Ave in Miami, FL. We are right underneath Highway 836 and here’s a look at the crossing This was a private crossing. And there you could see the emergency contact info. Funny because they don’t even put a location or a crossing number. and then this would be the actual crossing this is the 836 and this would be facing East bound This would be facing West. That right there was the North side of the crossing. This is the South side of the crossing. And here is where they closed it off. Recently I’m going to have to look back on historical images, but I know that this road here. NW 12th ST was built maybe like less than a decade ago. So there was actually a passage through here. came out through there. But yeah, once they built this road The NW 12th ST and then they built the overpass they pretty much shut this up. the passage her down. So that’s what it is now, all shrubs and trees. Oh, let me give you a look at the contact info on this side. CSX Transporrtation well then we got no crossing and no milepost number. This here is almost the end of the… This here is the like I said this is facing East. Facing West. We got that little kid in the middle of the track over there. This is track view West and then this is the Lehigh spur. Right over there the track ends. I believe they come to get rocks there’s a rock quarry down that way. So yeah guys That’s what we got here today As I’m here let me show you a quick look at the there’s a wooden trestle bridge here. Yeah. Alright guys, please subscribe, like, or share. And I thank you very much for viewing. Over and out.

    I would like to see more abandoned railroads turned into rail trails for bikes and pedestrians.

    doesn't this track lead out to that cement quarry located a bit west of there? I also looked at the link you posted, that section of crossing just beyond the trestle those folks were trying to walk on, the crossing lights also have been fitted with LED'S, and those damned e-bells lol so I presume a move of trains may occur a few times a year eh?

    Don't walk on the tracks. Even if you know they're abandoned. You could get run over by the wreck train!
