    Tropicana as a CSX does so this would be the western side of the
    crossing and this one is also, backlight is also terrible, yeah it’s a Western
    Cullen division of Federal Cantilever with WC Hayes lights as well. 2 looking front, 2 looking back We got the one I filmed previously over there. The eastern side of the crossing. these are WC Hayes lights over here too and gate mechanism on the crossing as its

    August 21, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen time for
    another railroad crossing tour here in Hialeah Florida this one’s Lejeune Road at East 21st Street, this particular one has sentimental value to
    me because back in 1988 my great grandparents used to live in 19th street and after school they used to take care of me so they used to take me to see the Train right and I
    remember once in the fall of 1988 I came home, to their house and I saw that
    they were putting up this cantilever here, both cantilevers actually. There’s one back there but when the truck moves I’ll show you by the way
    he’s parked right in the middle of the tracks look at that so anyway so lets
    start off with the tour you can see that this WRRS crossing signal
    base is pretty old They don’t make that anymore That symbol there then this is front part Here you got a WC Hayes gate mechanism WC Hayes bracket WC Hayes LED lights with my favorite visors, back plates are in fairly good condition I don’t know what kind of lights those are, they’re not RECO lights. Here we got The do not stop on tracks signal track view West track view East that over there is Iris interlocking those signals, that’s where the CSX meets the FEC and then WC Hayes bracket WC Hayes gate mechanism this is probably an MI, oh no Premier Products cantilever with WC Hayes lights all around, see I think those
    might be incandescent yeah then the bracket is a premier products as
    well Lights are WC Hayes, emergency contact info You got the big aluminum crossing gate there I’m going to attempt to cross the street. This is a very busy street as you
    saw and then here we got the relay case this pedestrian crossing gate wasn’t
    installed prior to 1988 either and I know let me show you the mile post over here it’s a mile post three six six so the pedestrian crossing Gate is a WC Hayes That’s Tri Rail you hear in the background
    WC Hayes signal base, WC Hayes bracket, relay case WC Hayes gate mechanism WC Hayes lights all around track view East as I said oh you got a whistle post over here
    nice and then here you got the same deal,
    you got a WC Hayes bracket WC Hayes gate mechanism Premier Products oh you see the DOT tag right there WC Hayes gate mechanism right emergency contact info DOT tag WC Hayes lights These might be… I’ll tell you right now Look at how tidy it’s kept over here, yeah no those are LED lights and then two tracks mechanical bells right there and over there on that
    side and that’s why this is one of my favorite crosses mechanical bells so
    yeah guys let me end this video with the shot of the track again give you a
    close-up over here where the signals are right there, that’s iris interlocking. Oh look at that, we got a CSX O721 no no correction that’s a CSX local
