    Abandoned Railroad Crossing & Spur

    August 9, 2019


    Hey guys, this is an abandoned railroad spur, abandoned CSX railroad spur. It used to be a former SCL in Miami, Florida. NW 10th Ave. and 22nd ST. Off to our left there, we’re going to see the stop dismount sign. And I’m going to continue to walk on the spur to show you guys where it led I don’t recall ever seeing a train here, if you guys seen a train coming thru here or rail cars or anything please comment below the last time you saw activity on this track I’d love to know. If it was a long time ago, if it was sometime recent, please comment. I’m going to continue walking here. You can see some cross ties, some wooden cross ties from the SCL days. The warehouse to my right is still operational. But yeah, these rails are pretty old. I’m looking for a date on them, but I don’t see one. And Right now I’m walking North, Sorry South… Southwest! And I’m coming up on NW 21st ST. there. This crossing had no lights, bells, or gates. It was just the wood and the cross bucks. If you guys log on to Historicaerials.com you can see where this spur originally led into. An option where you can see aerial views from different decades in the past. So here you go guys. Here is the last of the rails. as you can see they paved over where the rails met the the street. And I don’t see any cross bucks or any crossing gates or anything of the sort. They just made that loading dock there; the concrete looks fresh. So I’m guessing this didn’t go out of service for sometime in the not that long ago. in the distant past. So yeah, this would be looking back North of where we came walking through. Alright guys, please subscribe, like, or share. And thank you for viewing. Take care, over and out.

And the wires that were cut right there And here we see the foundation for the crossing gate with all the wires that supplied it with electricity Over here, you can still see parts of the crossing, some of the ballast. This would be facing West. see I was trying to see if there was a tie plate or railroad spikes, but no such luck So yeah now I’m going to go facing East So you guys I think there’s still some rail left on on the east side Okay bear with me. It could be a very busy road at times Okay guys, so I made it to the median and here you can see the median crossing or what was the median crossing? and then Over there is the east side And I am going to cross now as soon as all these people coming Northbound cross.
