Old Abandoned Railroad Spur

August 27, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m over here in Oakland Park, FL right next to the CSX main line. and look at what we have over here. We have an abandoned railroad spur. That used to service this warehouse over here. This is where the boxcars used to load. or unload. Classic SCL crossties. As this used to be a former SCL track back in the day before the merger. This is facing North and this would’ve been the end. of the spur. And now were going South again. Look at this. Look at this, they’re all over the place. Alright guys, I think That is it, there’s no more over there This is where the railcars used to load. Let me just take you guys here to the end of the line. I was trying to look for a date on the rails but they’re rusted beyond recognition. They have a layer of dirt here that’s been encrusted on them. Alright guys, thank you very much for viewing. Please subscribe, like, or share. Thank you. Bye.

    Great video! That facility is now a Broward County Public Schools Physical Plant Operation Divisions facility. The spur would of indeed crossed NW 38th Street alongside the main and merge onto the main in the middle of what is now CP Manatee. Video timestamp listed shows when the spur was still active and connected to the main sometime in the mid 1980s. https://youtu.be/ke-__LJh4ec?t=151
