    December 4, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here, your railroad archaeologist again today with our
    continuing series on the CSX homestead subdivision which is now officially
    abandoned I’m at Eureka Drive I’m gonna include a Google Maps link to this
    location this this location as far as I know never had any honey gates so all
    they did was fold up the lights and such you have an idea art they filled this
    this track in 1926 there’s a date I know always on them sometimes the date is in
    a minute an indication of when they put the track but in this instance I know
    for a fact they’re built in 1926 and then this is 75 pound rail signify the
    month in which it was built so you got one two three four five six seven eight
    nine ten eleven twelve December 1926 so yeah this is track view south west and track view northeast you can see in
    a lot of parts that grass is taking over so CSX officially abandon it they’re not
    gonna come over here and maintain it anytime soon this is gonna be a jungle
    and amount of time I’m gonna come back here and do more follow up videos on
    this may be like in the year that’s if that copra crap doesn’t put an
    end to the railroad ecology because that thing’s getting strict so yeah let me
    wait cuz they’ve got some cars coming I’m gonna fucking so here I am across
    the street got some concretizing it’s funny because
    I I don’t know if they meant to put those in you never did draw twin types

    Is This Train Track Without Crossing Signals Abandoned or Not ?

    November 23, 2019


    hello ladies and gentlemen, your RR archaeologist who today is a bit concerned regarding their
    new Coppa policy that’s putting everybody in an uproar on YouTube it so
    the Coppa is Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
    so basically YouTube was putting cookies until not cookies available kind but
    cookies that track your your movements on the world wide web and they put them
    into kids computers and software and whatever so then YouTube had to pay a
    fine of 117 million dollars and a settlement
    so now creators as of January 1st I think they are possible that they can
    get dinged or fined 100 I’ll sorry 42,000 dollars per video if they don’t
    like comply with the rules not to my understanding if you label your videos
    as not for kids you comply but then what is not for a kid I mean but kids like
    train so is this a kid video or is it not a training video so yeah that has me
    worried if you guys know something about this please comment below I’d love to
    know what your thoughts on thoughts about it are also I mean they also say
    like if there’s kid actors in it it’s it could potentially be for kids which is
    unfortunate because as you guys know I was working on an independent film or an
    indie film right with Taj Mahal and there’s a kid in that video he adopted a
    special-needs Mexican boy who you I mean you guys are gonna see the movie here’s
    some clips of it so yeah I don’t know there’s a there’s a child actor in that
    so you know this has me worried I mean a $42,000 a pretty big amount of money so
    that being said our or cross that bridge when we get there so this is a
    continuation of Sunday’s videos this is a loop a few blocks away from that
    dual-use pedestrian train bridge and then you can see that these tracks run
    through downtown Chicago and I have many intersections they have no crossings or
    sorry no signals or gates or anything like that
    so I thought it was a bit I that first I thought was abandoned but then I
    realized it isn’t when I saw the signs over there but then some people told me
    it is abandoned and you guys just you Chicago natives let me know is it
    abandoned or not what’s the deal comment below I’d love to know
    enjoy the video hello ladies and gentlemen railroad lady
    to hear coming from south of Ukraine village in Chicago there’s an abandoned
    our spur over on Cherry and Division Street
    I believe I’m facing oh I don’t even know what time so many turns to get here
    I’ll provide Google Maps links to this location
    I’m gonna go film or a bridge key block you mean that you can all walk through
    it let me go give you a yoga street so this would be Division Street and
    we’re on Cherry Street so it did some Street running on Cherry Street and when
    I was driving through here I did not see any signs of all I’ll show you okay so
    this is where the advanced warning sign is it’s about maybe 200 feet from the
    actual track and I did not notice any signs of first of all there’s no
    pavement marquees and second of all any signs of where they might have been
    crossed books or a crossing gate rating which I doubt that for such a busy
    street there would have been no the conductor’s flagging the crossing
    I’m sure they had to have been some sort of a cross Booker signal or at the very
    least a crosswalk which I didn’t see any so yeah okay and here is this guy’s ass
    option yeah I’m gonna go for them over there right now and then let me take you onto this /
    over here with a mercedes-benz of Chicago
    it went into mercedes-benz of Chicago all righty guys I’m gonna go film some
    more please leave me a comment let me know you thought of this video subscribe
    this you have it I notification ball thank you as always

    Historic Abandoned Railroad Bridge That Went to Overseas Railway

    October 19, 2019


    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here. Your railroad archaeologist who is standing at the
    very same spot that the tracks to the overseas or railroad ran through this
    year to my left is us one from South Miami and then that above me is a
    material which replaced the fec tracks in Miami that ran into the keys that
    eventually became the overseas roller this overhead structure was installed in
    1984 so these tracks or on here from about the Turner turn of
    the 20th century up until 1984 this is okay you remember a few weeks ago maybe
    perhaps a few months ago I posted a video of the only remaining piece of
    rails left in the overseas well really this goes along with that video
    this bridge right here is next to those rails the only remaining tangible part
    of the overseas of railroad and Miami so give me some backstory Barolo came to Miami in 1896 Henry
    Flagler though then founder of FTC for the East Coast Railway brought the FTC
    some I am in 1896 and that along with it brought of urban sprawl and economic
    development everything and then Henry Flagler decided to take the railroad in
    an ambitious project out to the Florida Keys in the virtual Key West he began
    that in 1900 so it was completed in 1912 so this bridge was built sometime in the
    early 1900s and as I said it was an original part there you can see the ties see that they see if it’s not as there’s
    a quite an embankment here I was trying to get to the bottom of it but let me
    see if on the other side did it safely I want to take a dive in that gate
    infested canard other than Metrorail to the Google Maps ring to
    this location so this is the original lead slip oh that probably used to be some sort of
    all milepost I’m guessing or would suppose perhaps so this magnificent structure is a
    hundred see those blessings brought 1900 it’s a
    hundred and nineteen years old so right now we’re standing is where all
    the trains came to is a very historic part she’s a beauty you know how much sin she
    has nothing all probably they’re not going to remove it because these are as
    a walkie you know same unfortunate teaching that
    most rumbles out there eventually turned into real skills thing for this one
    in all respects for Henry Flagler for the overseas will this one here looks pretty solid simple right so right now here I’m at this
    level yeah it’s pretty up there’s a lot of
    glass here and stuffs doesn’t look very firm so I’m not there’s Gators I’m not
    gonna risk it yeah there you go you can see it
    everything all righty guys let me see oh that looks
    like it might be an interesting view there that canal that looks like the
    Amazon I think you guys might like that yeah so this is definitely not navigable and standing on this all ready ladies and gentlemen please
    subscribe did you have it check out one of these videos leave me a comment down
    below thank you for your view you seen it take
    care sayonara

    September 2, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, here is an abandoned railroad crossing. This is emergency contact it says SXH which is The CSX S line Homestead Extension Mile Post 66.5 so this track Might or might not have connected to to the FEC Oversea Railway which is just a few blocks East of here. See? There was a switch right there. The railroad. And just over there where those palm trees are is US 1 The FEC Oversea Railway ran parallel to US 1 Some people say this track connected Some people say it didn’t. I have a railroad atlas That says it did, but That’s not here nor there right now. So anyway this is looking West. And this used to be part of the former SAL line. That was built in the 1920’s. I’m going to take you on a tour down this line. Ok guys so there it is There’s the railroad. And we’re going to see 3 or 4 more crossings See there are the rails. We just came from 2nd Ave. There’s a cross buck, cross buck rails right there. Another cross buck. This here is SW 4th Ave. And again we see another crossing over here. So I can see these rails haven’t been used in a LONG time. 5th Ave coming up here. And that’s where it came from. That would be, there’s a wye there. Which I have a video on. I’ll include a link to. And This is facing West. Like I said, this is the old SAL line. Make a quick U turn over here. And now we’re facing East again. Alright ladies and gentlemen, I thank you very much for viewing. Please subscribe, like, or share. Take care. Over and out. Bye. Bye.
