Railroad Crossing Former Site FEC

August 12, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m over here at a former FEC Railway crossing site. This is SW 64th ST in South Miami, FL. Here we can still see the RXR. It’s still pretty evident. Pavement marking. And There’s still some remnants of the old crossing. This old crossing, I’m going to include a picture of this is what it used to look like when it was active. I took this picture in 2004. And this is what it looks like nowadays. Track view, what would’ve been Track view South. And here we see an FEC Railway crossing sign. Some old crossing gates here. One buried there underneath all the pine needles. See if I can find again this crossing had no crossing gates, it was it was just lights, cross bucks, and bells. Here it is. This is this used to be here were the cables. And where they sawed it off right there. OK so what would’ve been track view South. There you have where the relay case used to be. See the cut of wires there also. And now I’m going to cross the street and give you what would have been track view North. Track view North. Wow! Look at, these at rails! Holy Molly! These are old wow! 1925! You guys can’t see it, but yeah. See uh… 1925 gees. That is amazing. Oh yeah here you can see something Maryland. Yeah. I’m going to have to, you guys can comment below if you’ve ever heard of Maryland manufacturing or Maryland Steel… Track view North I’m going to see if I can see where this crossing was Oh here it is. This is where it was cut off. And these were the wires that were cut right here. Here’s another crossing gate. cross ties. Please subscribe, like, or share guys. I thank you very much for viewing. Bye. Bye. Over and out.

    always sad to see the ballast with no more rails. I saw the picture in 2004, but did you ever see any activity by the crossing? Thank you for the continued abandoned railroad series, I learn something new everytime.

    Very neat find. Like how they used the old rail as part of the blockade into the former ROW.

    How I wish this line would not have been sold and instead turned active for commuter rail

    Interesting, being from Alaska I really like seeing videos like this. What if in the future an overseas rail line being rebuilt?
