    Liberia Railroad Crossing

    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
    doing undercover work Alright you guys, oh I forgot to give you a look at the emergency contact info this is an FEC line by the way, okay guys

    Railroad Crossing Tour

    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
    switchers the Y train Wow I’ve never caught that before Holy Moly! Wow! man all right so yeah please subscribe
