Last Railroad Crossing Before Sugar Mill

August 17, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen RailROL82
here. Today were at Clewiston Florida and off in the distance you can see the the sugar mill over there. This is the SCFE line south central florida express and
over here we have a small railroad bridge this here used to be part of the
original bridge where you can see the pilings were sawed off there and then
they build that one then I’m gonna give you track view here, over there we see the sugar train So that’s track view I guess south and we have a rail here from 1942
I just saw it somewhere here 1942 VSCO steelton in 1942 okay The relay case right there It says SCFE Sonora which is the street and I’ll include a Google Maps
link so you guys can see this location first hand, as for the crossing
itself, the grade crossing looks like it was recently done as you can see
there’s new pavement and it looks in fairly new condition okay and then the crossing you have this
simple set up over here where you have a GE Harmon single base you have a huge
ant pile here safe Tran gate mechanism Harmon LED lights all around with my
favorite kind of visors back plates appear to be in good condition Harmon
bracket There is the emergency contact information Oh you got the clear contour crossing lights over here and then on this side this is track view, I guess North GE signal base, safe tran gate
mechanism, Harmon LED lights all around, emergency contact info backlight is terrible at this angle and here you have the regular, sun is terrible Here you have the regular I think they might be Reco crossing gate lights and then the whistle post down yonder so yeah this line is primarily used for sugar cane There’s a school nearby alright guys thank you for coming along me
please subscribe or like thank you very much for viewing over and out

    Another fantastic video from the sugar country! That sugar mill looks very large, almost like the Pittsburgh's steel mills we were talking about last time.. I think you forgot to mention the crossing bell, was this the mechanical one? Nice small trestle bridge. I just wonder if there used to be two parallel bridges, or this one replaced the older one? Keep up the great work my friend!

    Hey ROL! Just asking, does the sugar train use this line anymore?

    Happy March 1st! :] But it looks like those ants really like the sugar cane, because of the hill being close to the rail.

  • Reply Jason Kowalski March 2, 2018 at 3:44 am

    Great new video. Thanks. I never knew what that “W” sign meant. What exactly is the whistle post?

    Excellent Coverage of this ex-FEC Line, I'm really curious as to what the FEC will do with this line once the lease runs it's time.

  • Reply Mel Perry March 3, 2018 at 3:07 am

    sure is a busy road, out in the middle of nowhere? the west(?)
    side of the tracks, on both sides
    of the crossing appears to have
    been DT, or a long siding, once
    removed?

    I'm guessing that bridge used to be for two tracks.
