    Removed Railroad Crossing

    August 26, 2019


    hello ladies and gentlemen RailRol82
    here, this is a sad day for rail fans this here is the CSX homestead subdivision right and as you can see the crossing was removed recently they got this
    sign now tracks out of service and then right now walking South and I think over here was where the
    cantilever once stood yeah they removed, there’s no more signs of it see? so then this here is a track view Southwest and you can see
    that the next crossing which is 232nd ST the signals are still there those signals are still there. I guess
    their days are counted like they’ll probably be removed sometime soon so the tracks are out of service and then
    I’m gonna cross the road now this is track view north
    east a whole lot of cars coming, let me
    try to see if l could film it on this side but on this side we got the same view
    you got the pavement markings right there and you got the rxr right
    there and then here you got the out of service sign this is the northbound lane
    of Krome Avenue and here is where the cantilever stood too. There’s no traces, they removed everything. The washers the only thing I can see the wires everything was cut removed and the relay case is gone yeah totally totally track view NE guys let me
    give you then another shot this way and yeah so I guess it’s just a matter
    of time before the rails are pulled to won’t be seeing you guys much longer so
    it was a pleasure knowing you and I had high hopes for you but I guess not everybody else did or who knows maybe you’ll be sold and reused again in the future it’s happened before all right you guys, Please subscribe or like thank you very much for viewing over and out

    Out of Service Railroad Crossing

    August 23, 2019


    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82
    here again your railroad archaeologist today I’m over here at the Redlands at
    this out of service or railroad crossing here I just noticed we have a gentleman
    sitting on the tracks but I’m guessing he knows they’re out of service yeah
    so me y’all get back to the crossing okay so this here is track view NorthEast right and then look at the grade crossing these wooden grade crossings
    are ancient the track itself was built in 1926 and then here all we got is this
    on dangling yield sign, cross bucks emergency contact info CSX transportation Crossing # 631139A Milepost there’s no customers left on this line
    so no no trains come down here and this is the East, sorry the Western side of
    crossing and then over here is the Eastern side of crossing so this is
    basically an agricultural area here as you can see it’s all nurseries and plants. I’m going to include a Google Maps link to this location so you guys can see I’m
    guessing this happened, you see that gap there? See the gap right there? that probably happened when Hurricane
    Irma came. Despite it having these holes here for the wind resistance,
    Hurricane Irma made it tilted. The yield sign and the cross bucks and I bet you guys know what that is if you’ve seen a lot of my videos, please comment below and I’ll tell you if you’re right
    or not so yeah Here you can see the date but I think, let me see oh yeah 1925 right there 1925 75 pound rail alright you guys, thank you very much for coming along with me on this tour. Please subscribe or like, over

    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here. Your railroad archaeologist so I’m over here at the CSX Homestead
    subdivision on you I tell you Rico drive processing I did a tour of this crossing
    last year and today I’m gonna show you what this time looks like now that it’s
    officially out of service here we can see some girls on it so Moodle right
    there this thing was built this is facing
    south west facing north east the sign was built in 1927 looking for a real
    with the date on it 75 pound rail built by a Marilyn Marilyn steel I do not see
    a date though but yeah I know for a fact that was built in 1927 and you can see
    the old wooden ties and if I stand on this line okay it’s mostly gross just
    see what it feels like to have been on this line this is what it was what it
    would have felt like see a nice residential area next to here and
    agriculture it’s on my right I’m gonna include a little map into that crossing
    so you guys can know where I’m at and this is facing north east so you see
    over here we can find a date on the rails yep
    1926 right there 1926 built by the seaboard airline railroad design came
    from my Annie from 5-9 the International Airport and do you ignore that it came
    to haul away from from Central Florida to homestead homestead is a city that is
    about a few miles south of here just to put it into perspective on this
    Yurika drive here this crossing is 1 84th Street and this line ends at around
    320 something 330 something Street so this is our about 20 miles away or so
    from the end of the line you can see these rails pure rust that’s a shame because if these reels
    could talk I’m sure they’d have some very interesting stories to tell and yeah there we see the gateless
    crossing it’s really case on the other side so yeah guys that’s this crossing
    and I’m gonna continue further south to Seoul I thank you for coming along with
