    Historic Abandoned Railroad Bridge That Went to Overseas Railway

    October 19, 2019


    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here. Your railroad archaeologist who is standing at the
    very same spot that the tracks to the overseas or railroad ran through this
    year to my left is us one from South Miami and then that above me is a
    material which replaced the fec tracks in Miami that ran into the keys that
    eventually became the overseas roller this overhead structure was installed in
    1984 so these tracks or on here from about the Turner turn of
    the 20th century up until 1984 this is okay you remember a few weeks ago maybe
    perhaps a few months ago I posted a video of the only remaining piece of
    rails left in the overseas well really this goes along with that video
    this bridge right here is next to those rails the only remaining tangible part
    of the overseas of railroad and Miami so give me some backstory Barolo came to Miami in 1896 Henry
    Flagler though then founder of FTC for the East Coast Railway brought the FTC
    some I am in 1896 and that along with it brought of urban sprawl and economic
    development everything and then Henry Flagler decided to take the railroad in
    an ambitious project out to the Florida Keys in the virtual Key West he began
    that in 1900 so it was completed in 1912 so this bridge was built sometime in the
    early 1900s and as I said it was an original part there you can see the ties see that they see if it’s not as there’s
    a quite an embankment here I was trying to get to the bottom of it but let me
    see if on the other side did it safely I want to take a dive in that gate
    infested canard other than Metrorail to the Google Maps ring to
    this location so this is the original lead slip oh that probably used to be some sort of
    all milepost I’m guessing or would suppose perhaps so this magnificent structure is a
    hundred see those blessings brought 1900 it’s a
    hundred and nineteen years old so right now we’re standing is where all
    the trains came to is a very historic part she’s a beauty you know how much sin she
    has nothing all probably they’re not going to remove it because these are as
    a walkie you know same unfortunate teaching that
    most rumbles out there eventually turned into real skills thing for this one
    in all respects for Henry Flagler for the overseas will this one here looks pretty solid simple right so right now here I’m at this
    level yeah it’s pretty up there’s a lot of
    glass here and stuffs doesn’t look very firm so I’m not there’s Gators I’m not
    gonna risk it yeah there you go you can see it
    everything all righty guys let me see oh that looks
    like it might be an interesting view there that canal that looks like the
    Amazon I think you guys might like that yeah so this is definitely not navigable and standing on this all ready ladies and gentlemen please
    subscribe did you have it check out one of these videos leave me a comment down

    Welcome to Hipfig’s Travel Guide Series on Miami, Florida. Miami International
    Airport, airport code MIA, is the main airport for the Miami area. Another
    airport near Miami is the Fort Lauderdale/ Hollywood International
    Airport or FLL. FLL is located 30 miles from downtown Miami which is about an
    hour drive. In this Airport guide we will cover Miami International Airport and
    its ground transportation options only You can find more information on both
    airports on our website hipfig.com Miami International Airport has 3
    terminals each with three levels. The Central Terminal is the main terminal. On level one you’ll find arrivals and baggage claim, on level two you’ll find
    ticketing, check-in and departures , on level three you’ll find the moving
    walkways which transport you from one terminal to another as well as from the
    central terminal to the MIA mover station which takes you to Miami Central
    Station. For public transportation and the rental car center. Above the North
    Terminal in Concourse D. There’s a sky train that runs only in concourse D and
    it’s four stations within the concourse Once you disembark the plane at Miami
    International Airport, domestic passengers and passengers from Canada
    who have gone through U.S. Immigration and Customs in Canada through
    preclearance should follow the signs to the main terminal and walk to baggage
    claim on level one. Ground transportation is available immediately outside the
    baggage claim area on the first level Arriving international passengers should
    follow the signs to US Customs and Border Protection’s passport control.
    Miami International Airport uses automated passport control kiosks and
    manned counters in immigration to help speed up the process.
    After clearing immigration proceed to collect your bags and clear us customs.
    If Miami is not your final destination and you have a connecting flight after
    clearing customs, drop your bags at the inner line lobby belt directly outside
    U.S. Customs. You must do this to recheck your bags for your connecting flight. If
    Miami is your final destination once you clear customs and if you are at customs
    D in the North Terminal, after exiting U.S. Customs you’ll be on the first
    level of north terminal D. If you are at customs J in the South Terminal after
    exiting U.S. Customs you’ll be on the third level of the South Terminal J. To
    find ground transportation take the elevator to the first level. You can find
    private pickup taxis and super shuttles on level one at all terminals. Go to
    designated taxi and shuttle stands that are located on first level curbside
    outside of the baggage claim area. There you’ll find uniformed staff members to
    help you. Tip: please do not accept offers of transportation from people inside the
    terminal. Look for uniformed airport employees with MIA ID badges only.
    Here’s another tip:there are two types of taxis: metered and flat fee to certain
    zones including Miami Beach and Coral Gables. Ask at the taxi stand if you want
    a flat fee taxi. Please check on hipfig.com hipfig.com for the links for more details
    for rates and fees for Super Shuttle and taxis. Hotels shuttle pickup areas are
    located outside on level 2 of the airport. Please follow signs or check
    with your hotel. Tip: it’s a good idea to have your hotel number on hand in case
    your transportation does not arrive. The moving walkway at level 3 connects all
    terminals outside the security area. The moving walkway will also take you from
    Central Terminal to the MIA mover station and the MIA Mover station will
    take you to Miami Central Station for public
    transportation and the rental car center Tip: if you need US currency for
    immediate needs there are foreign currency exchange booths located
    throughout the Miami International Airport. There’s one located at the MIA
    Mover station. Take the MIA Mover train to MIA Central Station from the
    third-level. Metro bus, Metro Rail and Tri-rail airport connections are located
    in the Miami Central Station third level Important tip: you’ll need an easy card
    pass to ride on public transport. To purchase your fare, easy card
    vending machines are located in the entrance of the Miami Central Station at
    Miami Central Station. You can catch the Metro Rail. Metro Rail is a cheap and fast way to get into Miami Check with your hotel for the nearest
    stop near them. You can take the Green Line if you’re traveling to Palmetto,
    Hialeah, Tri-Rail, Northside, Dr. Martin Luther King jr. , or Brownsville stations

    the top floor taking the stairs down. On level six, e prepared to be wowed! You’ll
    find a solar and lunar terrace with outstanding views of Biscayne Bay and

    degrees so that the 67 foot span creates and nearly 360 degree view Arrive at
    least 15 minutes before showtime for the best seats. Here’s a money saving tip:
    bring a plastic refillable water bottle with you you could refill it with water
    for free at any of the water fountains and perhaps some snacks. Here’s another tip: be prepared as it often rains in Miami especially June to September. Many
    parts of the museum are exposed so pack a reusable rain poncho or umbrella so
    you don’t miss a thing The frost museum will take three or more
    hours depending on your interest Combine with the Perez Art Museum which
