Signals Removed @ Abandoned Railroad Crossing

August 12, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen this is an update videos few months ago, I was at this crossing while they were removing the gates, lights and I wanted to come back here a few months after and see what had
taken place since then so it’s pretty much the same as I left it on the
cantilevers are still there obviously – the lights and gates and cross bucks but I
don’t think they’ve removed anything else yes, the concrete foundation for
the cantilever which is still here. I guess at some point they had a larger
cantilever or another one. You see the 4 screws over there. this is a track view North. This is Flagler Street in Miami Florida I’ll include the Google Maps link to it
to this location and then there we see the relay case off to the left this is facing West on Flagler Street
and I’m going to give you a shot at the cantilever right now, the sun’s in the way. this
would be the South side of the crossing. You can see the cantilever they’re still
there but the lights, gates, and cross bucks removed. You can see there’s a whistle
post and a mile post right there. Let me see if I can give you track view South here. It’s a pretty busy street so bare with me guys. yeah that would have been track view South there. there used to be a signal right like a
few feet South of that cantilever there, but not anymore This is the FEC track that went to US 1 and met up with the main and then went to the Oversea Railway. That was pre 1984
when they installed the metro rail Up until 2008 this line was in use it
serviced Everglades Lumber which was just near Southwest 8th ST and then
when that closed, this line was pretty much isolated because it was nobody left
on the line to service and looking North is over there where that overpass is the
link was, the line was cut so this line here is just isolated. See the wooden
cross ties. all righty guys please subscribe or like
thank you very much for viewing over and out

    Thanks for the update. They would keep the lights for later use unless they were falling apart. Then they would of been scrapped I feel. Thanks for the view.

    Yep, the Kendall Branch was severed from the Belt Line out of Hialeah Yard in 2008 when Everglades Lumber shut down. Whats weird is that when the Oleander Interlocking got torn up in 08, CSX reconnected this section with the Homestead Sub via a new power switch.

    Hey there! I just stumbled across your content a few days back and I must say I am very much enjoying your videos! I don't know if I've heard anybody else go into so much detail about the locations and what equipment is there (the brands of all the crossing equipment mainly), as you do, and I must say I thank you for that, sir! Very high quality content, I am very pleased to get so much information out of each video. You definitely just earned another subscriber. Thank you for reading, over and out – if I may add that to my comment 😉

    This line is weird, it leads to nowhere and it's a secondary Line (junction).
