Old Railroad Crossing US&S on CSX Former SAL SCL Miami, FL

August 27, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, I want to show you guys an old style CSX Railroad Crossing To begin with, I’m going to show you this one with the pointy tip. This one has the no left turn lens on it. I don’t know if you can see it. Get you up close here. No left turn. And then one up top. And then what I really want to show you guys let me give you a side view of this one. is the old style cantilevers that are used in this crossing You can see them on that side of the road that would be the East side of this intersection which is Coral Way and SW 72nd Ave. Miami, FL These are probably dating back to the SAL or SCL days and then they can also be found on this side of the intersection, Which is the West side looking East. Yeah. They don’t make them like that anymore. See if I can see who manufactured these and it says US&S Oh! They manufacture the mechanical teardrop bell! nice. So do you guys know if they made the cantilevers also? Please comment below. Interesting thing, I can see over there That crossing has an E bell on it so despite it being an old style cantilever this old crossing over here, they have E bells on both sides. Funny, I would’ve expected to have seen the mechanical bells. Alright guys, Please subscribe, like, or share. And I thank you very much for viewing. bye bye.

    Have you checked out the crossing gate at Perimeter Rd & NW 15 St just east of the airport? One of them is also the old school cantilever just a mini version though. I thought of this vid as I crossed the tracks there a little while ago

    Great video! Only a few of those remain on former SAL & ACL lines in Florida. Fort Myers still has a few and Orlando has one still.
