    August 26, 2019


    you hello ladies & gentlemen, RailROL82 here. Your RR archaeologist so it’s got time again I like to come back to
    this location once a year in follow-up videos we’re gonna see this isn’t an
    original abandoned seaport airlines burn we’re gonna see how its feared in the
    last year and so right now this is Northwest both
    I’ve anymore above Northwest 12th Avenue is the Metrorail
    that start above bub sorry elevated on rail service here ma’am commuter service
    and then this is where the spirit one is its I went into a produce market over
    there and as we can see here there are no coffees across bug some signals
    everything has been removed and yeah I’m gonna include the video that I took here
    last year the line was obviously a lot more visible and it is now a lot of our
    growth I’ve located in this line and they shut it off back there I think with
    the fence but uh let’s see what we got okay yeah it is getting really covered up
    previously I was able I think you were able to see the rails and I think one of
    the rails was like an original 19 20 20 something real I’ll refer to my video
    but yeah Mother Nature is definitely reclaiming this this is the sad part about being a
    railroad archaeologist the umbrella for thank you join me as well they they date what are you date okay I
    think I got something over here actually don’t fall smart here you go the railroad archaeologist
    1924 one nine two four says uh oh hi oh right there
    maybe it’s oh hi old steel so they guys let me look for the date on
    the nails sorry another girl spikes that one is a
    bit much Sharon biggest star going to here by the way this isn’t the best
    neighborhood in Miami sorry but land and there they were completely removed
    completely so yeah I’m gonna take a while Jesse and
    assume that when I come back next year see here you can barely already tells a
    rail so next year I’m probably gonna have to bring like a bulldozer don’t
    film this I do my update video on this julia side side guys
    I mean if I was the city I tell I offered to come a penis of myself just
    to preserve this nice stretch of original rail over here so the original seaboard tides – they
    were never replaced with all concrete would entice say a couple of prayers in the name of
    this fine served us spork over here oh he just kind of
    lizard damn what a savage get here buddy this began as a an abandoned railroad
    video and it turned into an Discovery Channel National Geographic video okay
    see if I can make my way over here and show you guys we’re winning oh it was actually teased yes we got the material coming up above
    us over there so I’m going to wait till I have a perfect yes you can see right here there’s one
    rail right over there and then we got these settings so there was two rails
    tooling in here at one point this is facing East right now

    all right ladies gentlemen RailROL82 again, we’re continuing our tour on the CSX downtown Miami spur, I’m not
    an expert on E bell so you guys could correct me if I’m wrong but I think this
    is a type one e bell like I said my Forte’s in mechanical bell so you guys have a
    car for sale there you have the relay case and then I remember in the 1980s I
    used to drive thru here as a kid this used to be a WRRS cantilever
    crossing with the small the cantilevers where like half of that like maybe up to
    here so this was replaced sometime in the 90s or 2000s there you have the
    emergency contact info foundation cracking many places Lincoln industries
    signal base safe tran gate mechanism safe tran lights are around
    Rico lights are now crossing gate these lights are also safe turn up top This is track view East towards downtown miami track view west toward hialeah and you can see this spur that came off and it ends ended right here, it’s a cross tie right
    there okay this is a pretty busy street let me see
    if I can give you the tour from this side okay yeah so here we have safe Tran lights up top I guess that would be another generation E bell as
    opposed to the one that’s above me save tran lights there wc hayes gate mechanism Rico lights on the crossing gate and as I said track view West previously there used to be some Spurs
    that went that they merged going that way I’m gonna show you them right now
    okay so you have a perspective that’s the crossing right and then this is
    Northwest 22nd a view and 22nd Street and this is where the Spurs that I just
    told you about went into these were taken off many years ago but they’re still
    visible at what used to be the grade crossing so I’m walking east on 22nd
    Street and then right here you can see railroad archaeology at its finest guys
    look at that so they went over there and to that warehouse and then you can see the loading docks
    right over there and then I’m gonna show you over here so
    again this there’s the rails and you can see the curvature it’s built at an angle
    to accommodate the railroad which was probably here first all right you guys
    so thank you for viewing Please subscribe or like take care

    this track is facing its curving a little bit south east – then go east and
    face towards downtown miami, give you a tour this this is this is funny because
    it’s one of the back roads right and it has a cantilever. I don’t know why they decided to stick a cantilever on a Road that barely has any traffic premier signal base WRRS WC Hayes gate mechanism SCL I don’t know if you can see that SCL on there, SCL Dot tag that is old school emergency contact info safetran systems lights, you got 6 of them two here are facing east and west and
    that one others facing south Ebell up top that’s not from the seaboard these
    and then this is the grade over here as i said i don’t know why there’s a need you
    can see there’s no traffic on the street why do they need to have a cantilever here if you have any idea please let me know in the comments below why you would want to put a cantilever over here Those are MI lights up top That’s probably original Seaboard too. Safetran lights WRRS signal base WC Hayes gate mechanism safetran lights E bell up top Rico lights Like I said, that’s track view SE and then it curves well its curved now but then it just goes straight east over there so yeah it’s an original seaboard
    crossing at least part of it is then you can see typical Miami, look at
    that illegal dumping right there all right you guys thank you for viewing
