sticker and then the lights are yeah WC hayes, you see those visors were cut off
well they were cut off because of the gate the gate would interfere with them today
as I said this was uh a my modern industries and then you got the lights
over there my favorite visors and this is the spur

    At 3:31 you see the new Hitachi cars on the Metrorail (heavy rail). Also, I think this is the spur they use to run around their train. If the train is too long, they leave cars spotted on what could be a team track next to the junkyard and/or at CBI. A few weekends ago, there were five boxcars on the spur east of 22nd avenue. I think for a food distributor. Also, there is an abandon spur just south of there, but I think you covered that already. You are right, the spur is service during the overnight hours. Although I've seen them in the daylight too recently picking up gons at the junkyard. I'm gonna check it out one day to see how many customers are left. I think a minimum of three. Thanks.

    Excellent tour as always! How often does the Metrorail drive by? I think it passed at least twice in this video, so were you just lucky, or is it really so frequent?

    Great video Roly! Man that's a busy area! Some of the side walks are really skinny by those buildings too! Do you know how much rail traffic that gets? It looks like not a whole lot. Great video again!

    I knew you would cover this crossing eventually! I'm going to get my computer hooked up tomorrow, so expect the video this Wednesday!

    Before I moved, I had a railroad crossing four miles away from me that had the electrocution hazard sticker on the gate bracket.

    Hey RailROL82, I did some more research on the downtown Miami spur and found some more interesting details. The track that crossed the diamond at NW 1st Ave and NW 11th St curved into a private right of way between NW 11th and NW 12th streets and ended at a wharf where the Perez Art Museum is. Based on historicalaerials, the docks had been demolished between 1969 and 1980. The other spur (the remaining one), used to branch off where the American Airlines Arena currently stands. One more thing I should is that the railroad bridge spanning across the water was moved North to South.

    no trains have run on that track in
    decades, way too much rust, where does the west start at? and
    where does the east end? or vice
    versa, πŸ™‚

  • Reply Mike P May 7, 2018 at 1:17 pm

    Good stuff! One of those areas that you have shown us that remains fascinating, I guess that the bulk of the yard that was to the southeast of this video was covered over by I-95. But the traces that remain, like the building that sits inside of the block formed by NW 6th, 7th, 26th and 27th. And the curved drive on the grounds of Booker T. Washington school that looks like the roadbed that ran through it. Keep it up!

    So how close are those power lines above the gates? Was hoping for a good shot of that, since it seems they're close enough to touch each other.
