    FEC Rebuilding the Overseas Railroad

    August 15, 2019


    Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always wondered
    what the Overseas Railroad would look like and today I’m going to rebuild it for you
    guys. Let’s start by adding rock. Good! It’s looking just like the one that ran parallel
    to US 1 in Miami. Now, we add some rails… Exactly as how I remember it! There is, however, a slight modification:
    because as you guys know, where those cars are currently running on used to be the actual
    railroad. In this example, the Metrorail never got installed
    in 1984 so it allowed the track to continue running parallel to US1 and eventually they
    built it back into the Keys. Let’s see that train! Now that’s what I’m talking about, we have
    a full fledged Overseas Railroad with a train and everything! How beautiful does this look, guys? Okay so now we have the full visual impact
    of what this would look like nowadays. Let’s get the audio version of this example. What would this sexy beast sound like? There it is my friends! Now we got to fully experience what this would
    look like nowadays. Not even the Mona Lisa is that pretty, right
    guys? Truly a beautiful sight guys. I’ll let you takeit in for a second… Who knows, maybe in our lifetimes we’ll get
    to experience this phenomenon again? Ok guys, please remember to subscribe, like,
    or share and thank you for viewing!

    Railroad Crossing Removed Before and After

    August 15, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m over here at SW 40th ST which is also Bird Rd in Miami, FL. and this is the site of the former FEC Railway Right of way That went up South. This is looking South. Met up with US 1, with the mainline along US 1. That went to the Florida Keys and eventually become into the Oversea Railway. But yeah, as you can see, this is where I’m at. And this is the railroad bed here. Facing South. This would be looking North. And this would be the foundation where the cantilever once stood. See the big screws that held it in place here. There’s 8 screws. There’s 4 on that side and 4 on this side. And this is where the where the crossing gate stood. And this is where the crossing was. Apparently, they’re going to turn this into a trail. all along the former right of way. It’s going to be Ludlam Trail. Here’s all the bulldozers and heavy equipment. That’s going to undertake the job. In this 2008 picture, you can clearly see the pavement markings in the bottom facing West on Bird Rd. Cantilever up top. And in this 2013 picture we can see that there’s nothing left. No No pavement markings, no cantilevers no crossing. Completely gone. Please Subscribe or like. Thank you for viewing. Over and out.

    Abandoned Railroad Being Restored

    August 15, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, so this is the before as you can see the rails were buried here in this picture. And in this picture, they used this track as a parking lot. You can see all the vehicles that are parked on it. But welcome to 2017! Here we see the first crossing. It has no gate, just lights and a cross buck. Here we see the emergency contact info. And we’re going to see a Safetran signal base here. And this is where the track used to be. You can see off to the right side there that there’s some cross ties they’re going to lay for the new track. This is going to be utilized for the Brightline now. So it can give, it can facilitate rail traffic in this area. This is looking East That’s looking South. This is looking North here. And this is where the spur used to come from the CSX main known as the SFRTA here in South FL. You can see the relay case off to the left there. And You can see this is where the train traffic stopped. And here we can see the crossing number 2. with the emergency contact info here And a Safetran signal base as well, no correction this is Modern Industries. A modern industries signal base. You can see lights are Safetran Cross buck up there. And there you see the where the track traffic stopped. This is where they’re going to lay the new track-age now. There’s the old relay case. Like I said, this is going to be used for Brightline. Please Subscribe or Like! Thank you very much for viewing. Over and out.

    Railroad Crossing Gates Removed Before Hurricane Irma

    August 14, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen today is the
    Friday before hurricane Irma strikes and I wanted to show you guys uh some
    preparations that the FEC took here on northeast 17th court on milepost
    338.8 in Wilton Manors. They decided to bring them the crossing gates that are in
    danger of flying with the tropical storm or hurricane force winds so let me go
    ahead and show you the first one here As you can see, they left it in the down position got a progress Signal base WC Hayes gate
    mechanism right WC Hayes lights all around And may I add that those are not LED lights I like those So yeah we got WC Hayes lights all around 2 tracks and there we see the emergency contact info see FEC Railway so this would be track view South and then that would be where they left the crossing gate they used tie-wraps Here we got the pedestrian crossing I guess they figuered that this they might be LED lights I’m sorry
    take that back pedestrian crosing gate so since its small its it not gonna pose
    as much as dangerous that one would so they left decided to leave this one on
    this is a WC Hayes signal base here WC Hayes gate mechanism and we got
    WC Hayes lights all around also those are my favorite visors by the way we got an
    e bell up top you built up over there too so as soon as this car passes I’m
    gonna go ahead and show you This is the North side of the crossing see the signal there so here we see that
    this one was removed and here we have a progress signal base as well
    WC Hayes arm WC Hayes gate mechanism WC Hayes lights all around the top emergency
    contact info two tracks and then here we have track view North here we have
    crossing gate was put temporarily for the duration of a
    hurricane Irma you know where we got the relay case and I think this might be the
    control point Wilton Manors on the FEC line I think this is might be the work
    that they’re doing a double track for the bright line and then here we have
    another WC Hayes signal base WC Hayes arm WC Hayes gate mechanism and WC Hayes
    lights all around as well up top and we have a WC Hayes mechanical Bell look at
