    Did you just happen to catch this train, or is The FEC on a schedule so you knew it was coming?

    Wow! I've seen a crossing that big, but the lights, bells, and gates were taken off! There were traffic lights, though, because it was at an intersection. It was in Decatur, IL. There were also 2 different spurs on each road, one owned by NS and the other one was CN.

  • Reply Rolando Gutierrez October 19, 2017 at 12:05 am

    Incredible that in the 1980s there was just 1 crossing gate on each side.

    Does the LNG tender have dynamic brakes and traction motors like a road slug? thanks

  • Reply Mike P October 19, 2017 at 11:03 am

    Good catch, though you know that the folks sitting in those cars probably weren't too happy. I'm sure that the FRA requires FEC to have defect detectors, you ever hear any of them go off? Just wondering how many axles that thing was dragging. Glad to see that you're back on the YouTube machine, though I missed your introduction on this one. My wife says that she's heard your voice enough, that if you called our house she'd say you're the guy in Miami that does the train videos! I think that you've shown us the siding that's to the southeast of this crossing, what about the one to the northeast? It appears that it's the remnants of a wye that was there in 1950 – https://ngmdb.usgs.gov/img4/ht_icons/Browse/FL/FL_Hialeah_346599_1950_24000.jpg

    It looks like the west leg of the wye would have crossed Red Road right about where you where videoing from. And I just realized that the buildings across the street are curved at the back to accommodate they wye, they've been there a long time.

    Great video as always! Love that you add the google map links, great idea! I'm wondering if the odd blinking on the signals was caused by a combination of led and incandescent bulbs? Seen that same effect on traffic lights and truck lights.

    You did a good job catching this train Roly, thanks for sharing your view. We had tracks crossing a busy street but only one lane each direction and decided about 20 years ago to build a bridge over the tracks. Do you know why that if this street is busy why they didnโ€™t do something like that years ago ? Was the cost too much or did the people in the area just not care about being tied up. People here always try to beat the gates coming down, too impatient :-))

    Why is the long FEC train going so slow?

  • Reply TheSegacampGamer and Werecamp March 13, 2018 at 5:52 pm

    THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! You should keep making Video just sitting here at the Crossing and watch the Train Pass just like Milleniumforce he does this on his Channel!

    Sat at that crossing a zillion times. No cantilever back then just a crossing arm and 2 lights. Red Road was only (barely) 4-lanes and no center turn lanes. Partner grew up on the west side of the canal at 16th Street. I lived up on 37th and Red Road.

    Nice catch. What is your favorite baseball team?

  • Reply Mike 1958 July 7, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    Cantilevers by design are only supported on one side. This is when the column is constructed as such that can support material extending away from the column. It's the way most railroad crossings are when they have the one piece coming up and then it juts out over the traffic. My question is this, is it still a cantilever if it is supported on both ends? I know this structure had to be supported because the length was greater than the height of the support. I was just curious and I'm not an engineer.
