    Abandoned Railroad Reclaimed by Nature

    August 27, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here. We’ve got another abandoned railroad crossing as you can
    see I still got some more of these from the last time on me okay so I’m going to include a google
    maps link to my location down in the description This is where the spur went into this is the last trace of it then that
    this goes from here this is facing East now facing
    East No cross bucks, nothing I think that rail now I am facing west
    and that’s where I began filming originally over there see how the sidewalk was built to accommodate the the railroad this would have been either
    I don’t know if CSX was the last one to use it or seaboard incredible huh? so yeah guys I’m gonna include a Google
    map link and then I’m going to walk over here so you guys know what where the
    last rail goes or the last visible rail anyways so this side too, they built the
    sidewalk to accommodate the railroad and zoom in here yeah one little clue though that might help us date this back, as you know as we are railroad archaeologist I noticed that this this
    light post was installed October 1977 so if this industrial park was established
    around 1977 it’s safe to say that this spur was probably put in around that
    time all right guys. Please subscribe or like
    thank you very much for viewing over and out.
