    Walking Abandoned Railroad Bridge From Decades Ago

    August 19, 2019

    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here, your humble railroad archaeologists they were here in
    downtown Savannah near the historic district and we see a lot of economic
    progress here we see the old highway of pilings right there to your left then
    the new highway to your right boom we see a lot of cars a lot of industry
    going on here we see cranes building buildings we I just saw a freighter leave and we
    feel the Port Authority building over here however all this economic progress
    is overshadowed by a black cloud which looms over us which is symbolic for the
    end of the railroad as we clearly see over here this is a truly heartbreaking
    sight guys look at this see so both sides of this were made of all
    break the both of the foundations that’s that authentic feel bridge right see if I could find a date on this real can’t beat that kind of engine right
    there next to the major highways why do some pop you can see the fall foliage in
    front of him yeah turn it up for a date – but this
    rail is so corroded I cannot see a bead on it
    holy crap it’s got ice breaking underneath so yeah you can see it went into the
    portal I want to go cuz there’s a security booth right there and they
    might think I’m being a terrorist something but yeah you can see uh it
    goes right into the point right there and then I will take you on a tour back
    this way yeah I see some radio I see okay that says nothing though I mean I’ve
    date okay so I will go back onto the street now
    and show you where this met you so you got cars parking on this rail
    here with I don’t think they have to worry about a train coming this way yeah we can see it ends up for another
    times but there’s construction going on right over there and it goes right into
    that crane I could run into that crane right there because that road is closed and I can’t
    walk beyond that point so that would be the end for now I’m gonna try to go on historic aerials
    dot-com and see if I can date back look back through you can go through back
    through decades like in the 40s and 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s and see when I was
    installed and when I was abandoned alright guys thank you for viewing
    please subscribe her like take care we give you one that shot of the bridge
    here the older removes the bridge and then three monstrosity they thought
    right next to it thank you for viewing please subscribe her like take care over

    Historic Abandoned Air Force Railroad 2

    August 19, 2019

    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here your railroad archaeologist so I wanted to thank you guys for making
    the so far this saw series of success V AB and the historic abandoned Air Force
    railroad in Orlando spur the first video by I uploaded it Sunday morning at 10:00
    Sunday night it already had three thousand views on day 3 which was
    Tuesday night it had sixteen thousand six hundred
    views so I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart for loving that video
    so much for all your comments very all your interactions with me for all your
    likes I really appreciate that all many subscribers I consider us like a family
    like I love interacting with you guys were all like-minded people we love
    history with of railroads we love sharing history and stories about them
    back and forth thank you guys so today we’re gonna continue with part two of
    this series I actually found a snake shattered skin
    on the track so you guys are gonna enjoy that in this video enjoy part two of the
    historic abandoned Air Force railroad railroad in Orlando
    McCoy Air Force Base you hello ladies and gentlemen Rollo ready
    to hear your railroad archaeologist part two in a series of the McCoy air force
    former railroad spur so as I said I’m gonna include a Google Maps link it’s
    this location you guys can follow along no trace of a former crossing foundation
    or relay case or anything if we’re following the gap the last time
    the Train used this they went off to the right I’ll go away in a second you see
    so yeah great crossing no pavement marking over here and no pavement
    marking over there so yeah it’s a pretty dense forest you still see the rails oh
    those are switched somewhere obviously this was put in after the track was
    abandoned so there’s still some rails in there the date is not visible those ever sold now it looks like the railroad to
    nowhere but back in the day I’m guessing this is a pretty vibrant sort of
    military equipment to the base oh look this is a surprise guys check this out
    this is why I didn’t want to go into that forest away some snake shut it to
    skin and look at how big it is yeah Wow it’s my friend Steve Irwin a decide that
    I can go at forts so these oh that’s a fire station over there so you had three
    tracks coming out of there that’s one two and three were there there must have
    been a lot of activity over here this is all I was doing a cold war days this one’s really beautiful I have not
    seen a date yet that is remarkable they have these will have so much mana so I’m
    guessing this over here is a private proxy we went into the fire station interesting let’s see if our this
    private Crossing didn’t tap pavement markings either so for my next video I’m gonna go over
    there follow the track see what it’s like over there as I said this was one
    of my first videos when I began this channel in 2017 and now it’s july 2019
    so try and see how they saw fared during all that time now my guess isn’t is that
    they’re not gonna remove these drills i mean they’ve been here since this was
    abandoned so why would they but uh this time is pretty old fifteen miles
    probably why would there be any movement at all here maybe back in the day that
    gate was in there all righty guys
    I’m gonna make my way back to my car now they said thank you for viewing this
    video check out one of my other videos subscribe if you have it thank you for
    coming along bye-bye

    THE SAFEST Railroad Crossing in the USA

    THE SAFEST Railroad Crossing in the USA

    August 19, 2019

    Hello ladies and gentlemen today I’m
    going to show you guys probably the safest railroad crossing in the whole United
    States so I’m at North West 37th Avenue Northwest 28th Street here in Miami Florida just a few miles from the Miami International Airport
    probably like less than a mile, this car coming I’m going to cross, so yeah so this is Northwest
    28th Street here you can see the railroad signals and here you can see
    that crossing itself right so the reason why I say well let me first show you
    the crossing first we got a safe tran system signal please we got a
    Siemens gate mechanism there is a crossing number contact info we got to
    safe tran LED lights all around and the Ebell on top with a bracket to hold
    it in place and the lights on the crossing gate are Reco lights okay and
    then this here is track view south this here is track view north the one
    you see on top there that’s the metro rail that goes that way to Miami
    International Airport but that green bridge you see over there that’s the
    historic SAL draw bridge that was built in 1926 so yeah so this is why I say
    this is the safest or one of these safest or rolling crossings here as you
    can see this is a dead end there’s a no trespassing sign there
    people just come here to dump trash illegally see
    no trespassing or dumping but as we can see nobody or most people don’t follow
    those rules and the funny thing is that they have they actually have a pavement
    marking over there you see on the ground the rxr know if you guys can make it out
    it’s a dead end like 200 feet that road ends right there they even have a
    light over there and then this crossing is probably the same safe tran signal base siemens gate mechanism but you see
    contact info safe tran LED lights all around this one has an E bell Reco
    lights and a bracket so I don’t know why they decided to invest all this money in
    this crossing American Airlines so yeah I don’t know why they decided to
    invest all this money in this grade crossing here when you’re not I mean how
    many cars come through here a day I think the only people that come through
    this crossing and people are gonna illegally dump stuff so oh and by the
    way they have a green we got green and yellow but there’s no train so so yeah
    guys yeah you just had the pleasure of seeing perhaps the safest or one of
    these safest crossings if anybody knows how I can access a website I don’t know
    if the NRA has a site or something that that shows the statistics for accidents
    that are crossing but yeah I’m guessing this would rank as probably one of those
    very high very high or very low in accidents very high in safety so there
    you go I’m gonna include a Google Maps link in the description guys please
