    August 12, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m over here are about two blocks West of the Miami International Airport, and I’m going to show you guys an overgrown FEC industrial spur There’s two tracks here One is still used. I doubt this one is, this is a track view like This would be north east Right and check out this growth over here Doubt that they used that See the switches in the back over there Two switches one two okay then you got this track It’s pretty rusty Right? Yeah And then over here, what have we here? Cut… Look at that, is that sabotage? Oh wow Somebody vandalized it, they don’t work anymore Okay, so then over here we got Three concrete guards an MI signal base This looks like it might be a GRS? gate mechanism This is old, the lights are also a MI Modern Industries lights, Modern Industries bracket WC Hayes mechanical bell Emergency contact info Those are definitely incandescent lights My personal favorite My personal favorite visors as well Rico lights on the Crossing gate Another look at the cut wires, look at that Man this is a shame And then the grade crossing isn’t in too bad of a condition, I’ve seen worse You got track view here, South West That one like I said, might still be in use. Then you got the relay case right there, NW 70th Avenue and the DOT number I don’t think trains been thru here for a while Perhaps it’s lightly used, but doubt it Northwest 70th Ave, the DOT number and then in case you want to rail fan Or look at an abandoned railroad or semi abandoned railroad got a sofa right there And then on this side you got this guy And you got more growth on the track over here, a lot more growth A few years ago, I think like in 15 there was an abandoned mail train parked right over here But they since moved it It used to come out on Google Maps. I’m not sure if it does, but I’ll include a Google map link to this location So you guys can go back in time and see it. So then here you got a different one, you got a Harmon signal base. You have a oh, WABCO my bad the other one wasn’t GRS. It’s a Wabco gate mechanism. You can see WABCO Wow You can even see here well I don’t know if you can see here, but Beneath the the spray paint, it says model 75 grade crossing gate mechanism So yeah, then we got MI lights all around here, too MI bracket, no mechanical bell on this side and Rico lights on the crossing gate. Here you got the old, the old ties The real is from 1950 1-9-5-0 I know Mel Perry tells me that the weight of the rail is right next to the date, but I do not see it here Okay, so you got that then yeah, it’s just growth all the way this way see Growth, not good See a piece of a crossing gate here, all messed up, man! All messed up! So yeah guys That’s gonna conclude this tour, please subscribe or Like. Thank you very much for viewing Over and out
