    Why do people abandon such marvelous and historic things?

    I can understand when rail companies go bankrupt but the major ones?

    When I lived up in the northeast during my teenage years B&O railroad was the only trains I saw back then. Besides the Metros out of Philly to D.C.

    We’re supposed to get hit dead on as a CAT 1 or CAT 2 in Virginia Beach on Friday.
    If I get washed away and never post a video on my channels again…..nobody will notice. Except maybe Step Curry and Taj Mahal.

    Thanks for the tour! That’s a rough hood!

    Be safe! Wishing you all the best!

    Stay safe out there from the hurricane!
    That's a cool bridge! I wonder why they painted an abandoned bridge?

  • Reply Rocket September 1, 2019 at 4:01 pm

    There's a few wooden bridges in my neck of the woods. Very cool too.. Vineland nj almond Rd and marris river parkway. It's a branch off of the main tracks called the Blvd that runs the hole length to the city and Vineland is the largest city in NJ. The track spilt the city into two. East side and west side. Google map satellite you can probably see some of it but they are pretty deep into the wood. STAY SAFE BUD! God bless

    Right here with you, partner. I really don’t know where that hurricane is going, but I’m scared. I hope you stay safe. But for now, I can only pray.

  • Reply Blake K5LLA K5LA September 1, 2019 at 4:29 pm

    That's a really cool find Roly! Must have been out of service for a very long time! Its amazing that the bridge itself is still there! Well my friend all of my thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone else that's going to be effected by the storm. Do whatever you have to to stay safe and we'll see you when it's all done. Take care brother.

    There was one in Elyria Ohio right by a chemical plant. It was a 1880s trestle. It was at the entrance gate to the shipping docks. It was a problem to go under to go in. It was standing there and no rail bed on either side. The tracks had been gone for years and slot of the berm was cut away for apartment complexes. I asked why the plant had never tore it down. And I was told that they had a wrecking company look at it and would charge 60 thousand to take it down. I looked at it and told them with a torch and the big wheel loader they had they could take it out themselves. I came back through there six months later and it was gone. They used the wheel loader and some chain and torched the mourning mounts and pulled it down. It was a short span like this one and was pretty easy to knock down.I know it was old but the tail line was gone and it was terribly unsafe setting there.. They took the stone blocks and made a retaining wall from them. I love the videos and be safe. Hope the hurricane turns away from you. Prayers man.

    Interesting video of this abandoned Baltimore & Ohio Railroad bridge in Baltimore, Maryland. Obviosly the line ame off the mainline that is on the other side of the bridge from where you shot the video. Howeer, I wonder where the tracks went in the other direction. From looking at the Google Maps loation it is hard to figure out where the track went and what it served. Another interesting find on your part. Stay safe with the hurricane in the area. Hopefully the hurricane will turn north and head off the coast in the Atlantic.

    Old B&O bridge, likely its at least 100 yrs old. lots of them in Baltimore that are still in use. There is one on Loch Raven Blvd that was an old B&O bridge that is still in daily use. I used to live off Loch Raven when I lived in Baltimore of a year and that bridge sees several CSX trains a day at all hours. Baltimore is a mess, but they do have some amazing historic rails still in use. Be safe down there RailROL82 and if you need to, board up your house and get the hell out of there! I saw Hurricane Katrina firsthand and I know what those things can do.

    No one pays you to take physical risks. If the bridge looks unsafe, stay back. No apology required. There are many derelect trestles across the country. There is no money to save them. Sometimes money will be spent to tear down the RR bridge to make way for road improvements. Thanks again for the video.

    I'm glad you recorded this as these abandoned bridges are being removed all over the place. Some are lucky to be converted to rail trails, but not all.
