    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

    Abandoned Railroad Crossing CSX FEC Connector Track?

    September 2, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, here is an abandoned railroad crossing. This is emergency contact it says SXH which is The CSX S line Homestead Extension Mile Post 66.5 so this track Might or might not have connected to to the FEC Oversea Railway which is just a few blocks East of here. See? There was a switch right there. The railroad. And just over there where those palm trees are is US 1 The FEC Oversea Railway ran parallel to US 1 Some people say this track connected Some people say it didn’t. I have a railroad atlas That says it did, but That’s not here nor there right now. So anyway this is looking West. And this used to be part of the former SAL line. That was built in the 1920’s. I’m going to take you on a tour down this line. Ok guys so there it is There’s the railroad. And we’re going to see 3 or 4 more crossings See there are the rails. We just came from 2nd Ave. There’s a cross buck, cross buck rails right there. Another cross buck. This here is SW 4th Ave. And again we see another crossing over here. So I can see these rails haven’t been used in a LONG time. 5th Ave coming up here. And that’s where it came from. That would be, there’s a wye there. Which I have a video on. I’ll include a link to. And This is facing West. Like I said, this is the old SAL line. Make a quick U turn over here. And now we’re facing East again. Alright ladies and gentlemen, I thank you very much for viewing. Please subscribe, like, or share. Take care. Over and out. Bye. Bye.
