    Is This Train Track Without Crossing Signals Abandoned or Not ?

    November 23, 2019


    hello ladies and gentlemen, your RR archaeologist who today is a bit concerned regarding their
    new Coppa policy that’s putting everybody in an uproar on YouTube it so
    the Coppa is Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
    so basically YouTube was putting cookies until not cookies available kind but
    cookies that track your your movements on the world wide web and they put them
    into kids computers and software and whatever so then YouTube had to pay a
    fine of 117 million dollars and a settlement
    so now creators as of January 1st I think they are possible that they can
    get dinged or fined 100 I’ll sorry 42,000 dollars per video if they don’t
    like comply with the rules not to my understanding if you label your videos
    as not for kids you comply but then what is not for a kid I mean but kids like
    train so is this a kid video or is it not a training video so yeah that has me
    worried if you guys know something about this please comment below I’d love to
    know what your thoughts on thoughts about it are also I mean they also say
    like if there’s kid actors in it it’s it could potentially be for kids which is
    unfortunate because as you guys know I was working on an independent film or an
    indie film right with Taj Mahal and there’s a kid in that video he adopted a
    special-needs Mexican boy who you I mean you guys are gonna see the movie here’s
    some clips of it so yeah I don’t know there’s a there’s a child actor in that
    so you know this has me worried I mean a $42,000 a pretty big amount of money so
    that being said our or cross that bridge when we get there so this is a
    continuation of Sunday’s videos this is a loop a few blocks away from that
    dual-use pedestrian train bridge and then you can see that these tracks run
    through downtown Chicago and I have many intersections they have no crossings or
    sorry no signals or gates or anything like that
    so I thought it was a bit I that first I thought was abandoned but then I
    realized it isn’t when I saw the signs over there but then some people told me
    it is abandoned and you guys just you Chicago natives let me know is it
    abandoned or not what’s the deal comment below I’d love to know
    enjoy the video hello ladies and gentlemen railroad lady
    to hear coming from south of Ukraine village in Chicago there’s an abandoned
    our spur over on Cherry and Division Street
    I believe I’m facing oh I don’t even know what time so many turns to get here
    I’ll provide Google Maps links to this location
    I’m gonna go film or a bridge key block you mean that you can all walk through
    it let me go give you a yoga street so this would be Division Street and
    we’re on Cherry Street so it did some Street running on Cherry Street and when
    I was driving through here I did not see any signs of all I’ll show you okay so
    this is where the advanced warning sign is it’s about maybe 200 feet from the
    actual track and I did not notice any signs of first of all there’s no
    pavement marquees and second of all any signs of where they might have been
    crossed books or a crossing gate rating which I doubt that for such a busy
    street there would have been no the conductor’s flagging the crossing
    I’m sure they had to have been some sort of a cross Booker signal or at the very
    least a crosswalk which I didn’t see any so yeah okay and here is this guy’s ass
    option yeah I’m gonna go for them over there right now and then let me take you onto this /
    over here with a mercedes-benz of Chicago
    it went into mercedes-benz of Chicago all righty guys I’m gonna go film some
    more please leave me a comment let me know you thought of this video subscribe
    this you have it I notification ball thank you as always

    Abandoned Railroad

    August 18, 2019


    Okay ladies and gentlemen, I have a video up
    to the bridge right now I’m going to continue walking northward
    this is the FEC Railway the abandoned portion and I’m going to continue
    walking northward now so let’s just see what this looks like over here this
    is North of the Flagler Street crossing. And this is totally totally abandoned here. this is the South and this is North there hasn’t been a train through here
    since 2008 Looking South again and looking North. You see nature is taking this back. I wonder what that sign held up maybe an
    end of the track or who knows maybe it was a whistle post but why would it be in the
    center of the track right and then starting to get a little bit dense over
    here signs of life here nature is definitely winning the battle
    to claim this. Look at this, these pine trees are going to be looking like that in a few years. yeah guys I think try walking a few more feet but over there it’s really
    dense yeah that’s the end of the trail here I
    don’t know I want to venture out because I don’t know if there’s anything yeah you can’t see that line anymore it’s
    all consumed by bushes it so we’ll just walk South again remember him? yeah well it’s pretty in there. I’m guessing it was put in there by the FEC and not by somebody. I wonder if that might’ve been a No because this was dark territory there was no signals here so it
    was nothing railroad related we’re going to use the East trail It’s a shame because other than shrubs and pine trees and grass seems like it
    could still be used Further down the line I saw rails that were made by our
    Maryland in 1928 so not bad for it being almost a hundred years old right ? Okay guys guys you guys are going to walk the bridge
    with me East that would be West I used to be a gymnast in my past life
    so let’s see I still remember how to do it! a little bit more tense than what you
    can see on the video you can see further about some cross ties are rotten like
    that one skip that one It was all busted up look at that walking on top of the
    steel beam there so I have reinforcement in the bottom North. South you got to be on top of your game here, this
    might have been essential to the crossing. You can see the wood there in the bottom Sweat is dripping down my arm! feels great though guys is a part of history
    all right guys also leave you know I thank you very much for accompanying me on this
    tour please subscribe or like over and out.

    Exploring Abandoned Railroad & Crossing

    August 13, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen so an
    update on an abandoned railroad crossing over here at Southwest 8th St. and SW 69th Ave so over here a few months ago I filmed this crossing where you can
    see the cantilevers are missing the light and gates, crossbucks. I came to see
    what else had been removed and at first glance it appears that they
    haven’t touched anything else this is walking westward and SW 8th ST Where that Walmart is, that was the sight of Everglades Lumber, until 2008 when it closed. So on that side, opposite side
    which would be the North side of the crossing you had the relay case and then here it
    this would be track view South. And here you have the cantilever and where the
    crossing gate once was. Notice the cut wires there and the four screws that held it
    up this was all a Harmon Cantilever yeah you can see the brackets for the lights there. Nothing else. Track view South This line actually ends four blocks
    South of here home at Southwest 12th ST have a video where I filmed the end of the line. It’s fenced off. yeah you can see this beyond that you
    can see the remnants of the rail bed but nothing else give you a quick
    glance here that there is Voodooo.
    There’s a dead chicken in there. Whoever dropped that off thought that this track
    will still active and that the train was going to take away the bad spirits but
    there’s no train or bad spirits so jokes on them right ha ha ha. Track view South. Give you a walk here… see concrete cross ties one and two
    among all the wooden cross ties. that house has probably been there as
    long as the railroad it’s about the late 1920s or maybe earlier than that. Wow!
    look at that building it’s totally covered in vines oh crap that’s amazing. Oh! Again I got all these guys sticking
    along with me. This here is a mango tree. Been picked clean. okay Mobile home park there. damn I hate when these go inside your shoe, pinch you all over the place makes it uncomfortable to walk Can you see a date on there? hey guys this is all the end of the line
    is about a hundred feet that way getting kind of cloudy and windy so I don’t want
    those oh well you just walk a few hundred feet here and show you the There’s a spur here. Man! Look at this. This is freaking torture. Cheese 2 so this is the FEC track that
    connected to the main along US one in Southwest 88th ST and then led into the
    Oversea Railway but look at this. It’s a Wheel stop by Hayes, old school. so yeah the end of the track is just like I said about a hundred or so feet over there
    where I have a video on so I’m going to head back before the rain guys- feel it
    in the wind now walking northbound and this way it
    went about maybe five or so miles then it went were the Miami International
    Airport is went around the airport into the Hialeah yard which still exists.
    Currently the Hialeah yard is the southernmost point for the FEC Railway now. Oh God! Another one. Those things are ruthless. I don’t know why I find this to be such a beautiful sight you think so? If you agree with me, comment below. I
    don’t know it’s just maybe the history and it’s the potential
    that that there is here or that there was here Or that nature is reclaiming what once belonged to man. take that in for a second look at how
    old that is all in all, this track isn’t in bad shape for something years old right? and here we go SW 8th ST. Our original filming spot. So now, we were facing West. Now we’re going to be facing East. Alright guys, I thank for your accompanying me on that tour. Please Subscribe or Like! Take care, over and out.

    What Are The Bags Next to the Railroad Tracks ?

    What Are The Bags Next to the Railroad Tracks ?

    August 9, 2019


    so right now I am in Hialeah Florida
    that’s right next to Miami it’s actually to the west of Miami
    Florida and Florida man at any given railroad crossing you will find these
    bags coconuts on the train tracks so I’m gonna include a Google Maps link to this
    location where I’m at you guys can follow along are the bags that I’m
    referring to see you right there you got one two three four a couple coconuts
    five six seven and boom here is your answer what’s in there
    to the dead chicken now here’s another ticket why are there so many dead
    chickens that are given no no Posse in Hialeah Florida or South Florida simple
    answer this is of buidling Santeria Santeria is an afro-cuban religion where
    to put a spell on somebody you go to a voodoo doctor or a parallel and that you
    these people make a killing they pay like they literally make a trillion as
    you can see here but they literally make a killing and aside from that they make
    a lot of money because people pay thousands of dollars to put a spell on
    somebody or to put negative vibes they call it my Dale whole like an evil eye
    on somebody so yeah they paid thousands of dollars
    and then these people what they do is they sacrifice a chicken or a go to
    whatever saying corresponds to the desire that the person is asking for it
    and then when they do sacrifice chicken they put it in a bag and throw it
    trackside so the Train can whisk away the bad spiritual implement when I used
    to walk to the railroad the engineers that had this route didn’t want this
    route because they were weary of the bad spirits are gonna go on the train
    personally I just believe it’s not a mumbo-jumbo I’m not really into that
    kind of stuff I personally believe that there’s no scientific explanation for
    somebody cutting a chicken’s head off or killing a chicken or a goal and then
    that has an impact on my life but there’s some very weak minded people
    that do believe in that nonsense and then the coconut is also it has a
    similar it has a similar effect but what that is coconuts again so these coconuts
    we have a white pinstripe on kind of are used like let’s call it a spiritual
    cleansing of a house so like let’s say you have the back room of a house you
    just purchase the house we move into a house and you want to cleanse it of all
    the evil spirits what they do is they put the coconut in the back room of the
    house and they kick it through each and every
    corner of the house well first of all has to be a dried up coconut and they
    paint a white stripe on it I don’t know why the white stripe but yeah so they
    start off in the back room to kick it throughout the whole house and it’s
    supposed to take away with it all the bad vibes it’s supposed to help you with
    your mentality for your spouse to remain loyal to you for good health except
    cetera again I don’t believe in this nonsense but a lot of people do and
    there’s big money in it like some of these people live in mansions and have
    nice prized because people pay for this nonsense so this is just one side of the
    crossing right this is the west side of the crossing and you saw how many bags
    you counted here right let me take you to the east side of the crossing so you
    can see all the more oh we’re not that busy but gets person traffic okay so as
    I said I’m an East 10th Avenue there’s a really case so these are the
    FCC tracks that’s iris interlocking that’s all
    these tracks run east and west or whether you have the CSX tracks that run
    north and south so here you have more bugs one two three four get all this
    crap and this is incredible and then the smell here there’s another coconut
    there’s another dead chicken more coconuts here chickens bones people this
    could pose our health our health our risk because you know chickens have been
    known to have a B coli Salmonella so yeah that stuff gets into the ground and
    into the drinking water not to mention it’s like people walking by and they
    might touch it or come in contact with it school kids with their book bags and
    whatnot yeah it’s not a very pleasant thing this was actually taken to the
    Supreme Court in 1993 and the Supreme Court ruled in favor of call it the
    animal killings because it’s a religious freedom so these people are allowed to
    continue such barbaric practices which is a shame because I’m an animal lover I
    have dogs and I can’t imagine anybody killing an animal just because they
    think it’s going to better their life or worse than somebody else’s it’s it’s
    truly pathetic but what can you do it’s the world we live in so yeah guys I
    thank you for watching this video please subscribe or like tell me what
    you think down below of this barbaric practice take care the way
