    August 28, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, this is where today’s video takes place. You’ll see on the left you have Highway 710. To the right you have North Lake Blvd with the pavement marking and the crossing in the background. And then you see that CSX Train Q453 is going to be heading East bound. And as the crossing is down you’re going to see that the lights malfunction quite a lot. So here comes the video. Sit back and enjoy. Ready, set, go! That right there was the first glitch. Comment below how many you see throughout the entire video. WC Hayes signal base WC Hayes gate mechanism I believe those are Safe Tran lights. This is track view East Track view West.

    this is the Mona Lisa of railroad crossings this is buried treasure over
    here, I’m on Savannah road in Fort Pierce Florida and I came across this, this is
    the FEC line. This cantilever, let’s see who made it. I would imagine it’s
    Michelangelo let’s see. This is actually a of Federal Western Cullen division so
    it’s a WC Hayes cantilever the lights are also WC Hayes The lights up top over there. Which are also also WC Hayes
    you got two look and front two looking back and then you got the crossing gate
    separate the signal base over here is mi modern industries the gate mechanism backlight is terrible here WC Hayes mechanical bell up top let me get the other crossing, this spur
    here, That’s the mainline I’m going to go film that one right now but
    this is a spur that goes into the at Tropicana they come back with some
    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
    separate just like the one over there is MI modern industries and we got the same
    gate mechanism as over there and the emergency contact info is also on this
    side and this will be track view this would be South West that curve and
    that curve is northeast and eventually North towards Jacksonville all
    right you guys let me give you one more shot here Of Mona Lisa please

    Railroad Crossing CSX Industry Spur

    August 27, 2019


    Okay ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to show you guys a spur over here and railroad crossing it looks like its a very lightly used RR crossing it might be unused lets see when i get there based on what the rails look like ok so thats i95, this is the Fort Lauderdale Tri Rail station and then here you see the spur and then here you see the switch the stop dismount sign this is facing South and then yeah these rails look really polished at least this one definitely sees activity yeah that sees activity the other one, I don’t think it sees much activity you could see it has a lot of growth on it yeah I don’t want to go, that’s trespassing so stay right here and then I see this one I don’t know if that was a train that that leaked motor oil something very thick thick chemical but this one here that goes all the way over there and then this might be a very lightly used line notice there’s no cross bucks on that side just this one alright you guys Please subscribe or like, thank you very much for viewing.

    Abandoned Railroad Reclaimed by Nature

    August 27, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here. We’ve got another abandoned railroad crossing as you can
    see I still got some more of these from the last time on me okay so I’m going to include a google
    maps link to my location down in the description This is where the spur went into this is the last trace of it then that
    this goes from here this is facing East now facing
    East No cross bucks, nothing I think that rail now I am facing west
    and that’s where I began filming originally over there see how the sidewalk was built to accommodate the the railroad this would have been either
    I don’t know if CSX was the last one to use it or seaboard incredible huh? so yeah guys I’m gonna include a Google
    map link and then I’m going to walk over here so you guys know what where the
    last rail goes or the last visible rail anyways so this side too, they built the
    sidewalk to accommodate the railroad and zoom in here yeah one little clue though that might help us date this back, as you know as we are railroad archaeologist I noticed that this this
    light post was installed October 1977 so if this industrial park was established
    around 1977 it’s safe to say that this spur was probably put in around that
    time all right guys. Please subscribe or like

    Abandoned Railroad Crossing Perry, FL 2

    August 27, 2019


    OK guys this is a a little further East of the previous filming spot. Here you can see that there once was a a spur which is no longer in use that went into that factory over there. You can tell it hasn’t been used at least maybe 5 or 6 years. due to all this growth here. and then the railroad company piled up all the rails there. This is Perry, Florida They don’t even have cross bucks anymore, they just have stop signs! at this particular crossing now. This is Duval Street in Perry, FL. See the cross buck over here. It’s seen better days!

    Old Abandoned Railroad Spur

    August 27, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m over here in Oakland Park, FL right next to the CSX main line. and look at what we have over here. We have an abandoned railroad spur. That used to service this warehouse over here. This is where the boxcars used to load. or unload. Classic SCL crossties. As this used to be a former SCL track back in the day before the merger. This is facing North and this would’ve been the end. of the spur. And now were going South again. Look at this. Look at this, they’re all over the place. Alright guys, I think That is it, there’s no more over there This is where the railcars used to load. Let me just take you guys here to the end of the line. I was trying to look for a date on the rails but they’re rusted beyond recognition. They have a layer of dirt here that’s been encrusted on them. Alright guys, thank you very much for viewing.

    Old Railroad Crossing US&S on CSX Former SAL SCL Miami, FL

    August 27, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, I want to show you guys an old style CSX Railroad Crossing To begin with, I’m going to show you this one with the pointy tip. This one has the no left turn lens on it. I don’t know if you can see it. Get you up close here. No left turn. And then one up top. And then what I really want to show you guys let me give you a side view of this one. is the old style cantilevers that are used in this crossing You can see them on that side of the road that would be the East side of this intersection which is Coral Way and SW 72nd Ave. Miami, FL These are probably dating back to the SAL or SCL days and then they can also be found on this side of the intersection, Which is the West side looking East. Yeah. They don’t make them like that anymore. See if I can see who manufactured these and it says US&S Oh! They manufacture the mechanical teardrop bell! nice. So do you guys know if they made the cantilevers also? Please comment below. Interesting thing, I can see over there That crossing has an E bell on it so despite it being an old style cantilever this old crossing over here, they have E bells on both sides. Funny, I would’ve expected to have seen the mechanical bells. Alright guys, Please subscribe, like, or share. And I thank you very much for viewing. bye bye.

    August 27, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen today I’m
    over here in Liberia. I’ve always been curious what it would be like to
    see a railroad crossing or a train in Africa right so given my fear of flying
    in that I’m probably never gonna get on an airplane to go there, closest I can
    get is Liberia here in Hollywood Florida I’ll include a Google map link so
    you guys can us see what this locations all about, if you google that
    you’ll find that there’s, a it’s a rough neighborhood now not very good things
    associated with this neighborhood so I’m gonna go ahead and give you guys a tour of the
    crossing here in Liberia so we have a fabricated metal signal base Louisville
    Kentucky, WC Hayes arm WC Hayes gate mechanism and WC Hayes lights for 8 WC
    Hayes lights and my favorite WC Hayes mechanical Bell up top endangered
    species and then those are all Reco lights on the crossing up top and here
    we see uh our first liquor store in Nigeria over here sorry nah Nigeria
    Liberia then this is track view South see See this crossing was recently done you can see at this rails from 2015 and this is track view North over here I didn’t even have to get my passport to come to Liberia today, my lucky day and then you can see that rusted WC
    Hayes mechanical bell up top over there we got kwik-e-mart over here already
    very good and then over here we have another fabricated metals signal base WC
    Hayes arm. Wait, back light is killing me over here. WC Hayes gate mechanism arm and WC Hayes lights WC Hayes mechanical bell and those
    lights I believe those are different, there not
    Rico there’s something else I can’t tell from this angle but yeah and here like in Liberia just
    like the United States you have trespassers look at this guy then they wonder why people end up dead maybe he’s from the FRA and he’s just
