    OLD Railroad Crossing

    August 18, 2019

    hello ladies and gentlemen
    RailROL82 here continuing the tour of the CSX downtown Miami spur. okay so right now
    this track is facing its curving a little bit south east – then go east and
    face towards downtown miami, give you a tour this this is this is funny because
    it’s one of the back roads right and it has a cantilever. I don’t know why they decided to stick a cantilever on a Road that barely has any traffic premier signal base WRRS WC Hayes gate mechanism SCL I don’t know if you can see that SCL on there, SCL Dot tag that is old school emergency contact info safetran systems lights, you got 6 of them two here are facing east and west and
    that one others facing south Ebell up top that’s not from the seaboard these
    and then this is the grade over here as i said i don’t know why there’s a need you
    can see there’s no traffic on the street why do they need to have a cantilever here if you have any idea please let me know in the comments below why you would want to put a cantilever over here Those are MI lights up top That’s probably original Seaboard too. Safetran lights WRRS signal base WC Hayes gate mechanism safetran lights E bell up top Rico lights Like I said, that’s track view SE and then it curves well its curved now but then it just goes straight east over there so yeah it’s an original seaboard
    crossing at least part of it is then you can see typical Miami, look at
    that illegal dumping right there all right you guys thank you for viewing

    Half Removed Abandoned Railroad Spur

    August 12, 2019

    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here your RR archaeologist so right now I’m at the scene of the crime at FT Lauderdale, FL at a warehouse where I filmed one of my first videos it
    was an original abandoned or seaboard Airlines railroad spur and when I
    filmed that video it was in its entirety
    however sometime between when I filmed that video and now they removed half of it, so I’m going to show you guys that. If you guys haven’t subscribe to my channel please subscribe
    so you can see more videos like this. I post videos Wed and Sun If you can help me out in my patreon that’s
    contribute to my channel I would greatly appreciate it if you can Thanks to Audra, John, & people that help out, I greatly appreciate you guys thank you very much so enjoy the video ok ladies and gentlemen here is a
    beautiful Florida canal Right next to it we have A beautiful Seaboard or what used to be a beautiful seaboard railroad spur now this is, I’m going to dare to say 100% original these wheel stops you see a lot better on this side pardon if, there’s a lot of wind so I’m going to try my best to talk close to the microphone I think it says Midwest steel corp right here yeah, Midwest Steel Corp. I’m looking for a year but can’t find it ok so then the rails officially end
    right here and now we’re gonna start our search for dates and such & interesting things okay so on the inside of the rail you
    see that it’s submerged in dirt over here oh ok I thought it was a date so yeah these ties are definitely old
    SAL ties oh it’s really on there Beauty right? she’s a beauty
    so that over there is the main seaboard railroad that was built in 1926 on the
    way to run all the way south to Homestead Florida and I have a little
    video for the end of the line of that line it’s in Homestead Florida it’s
    about 30 40 miles south of here I’ll include a link it’s a southernmost
    railroad in the United States but even further south than Texas so if this track could talk could you
    imagine the stories in hotel tell you guys I mean in 1926 this line saw steam
    all the time and then it’s all the transition from steam to diesel but yeah this raill here is so rusted When I get home, I’m going to go on look at that, where you can
    go see the historic aerial images from space and see when that crossing was
    removed my guess is sometime in the early 90s
    mid 90s so far like l said, this is all dirt filled rusted there’s no way to notice a date on them yikes that thing is boiling hot! if you guys are interested in buying I’m selling them
    name your price at the bottom leave me a comment so yeah my favorite part about exploring
    abandoned railroads is you feel you’re a part of history
    this track was built in 1926 and as I said that was almost 100 years ago so
    it’s almost like taking a trip back in time for me not to mention all the
    industry and other economic growth it brought to this area here you go, look at that wow guys I have not seen okay and then you
    guys tell me that on the top of the nail there might be a date not this one that’s the tri rail local commuter train between, he’s
    headed south right now on his way to Miami International Airport from West
    Palm Beach and then this is facing north it’s about three o’clock right now so
    the Sun is kind of setting this way I want to show you guys some funny
    graffiti here Haitians live here and poon tang, if you don’t know what that means that’s your homework… look that up I’ll give you the answer, it’s a women’s
    reproductive organ in Vietnamese I think all righty guys and that is our railroad
    for today so this is where it was a sawed off right here you can see and then all this part South to here was
    removed so in my old video you can still see well my old ditty you can see you’ll
    be able to see it all the way up to the road but here you can still see like
    part of the cross ties example another railroad spike over here so yeah that’s where this is where the
    crime scene is for us railroad loyalists you know you guys feel my pain all righty guys so please leave me a
    comment and tell me what you think thank you for watching this video and coming
    along with me on this tour please subscribe or like if you haven’t, hit
    that notification bell so you can get alerts on my videos when I post them on
    wednesdays and Sunday mornings take care bye bye

    Abandoned Railroad From Seaboard Days

    August 12, 2019

    you hello ladies and gentlemen guys and gals
    RailROL82 here, your humble servants and your railroad archaeologist
    okay I’m gonna give you a bird’s-eye view right now of what I’m about to film
    this is an update video this is one of the first videos I filmed when I began
    my channel a couple of years ago that highway you see there is highway 112
    going West International Airport few blocks away so I’m a South East 14th
    Street and this is 10th Avenue or 10th court I’ll include the Google Maps in
    this location so you guys can follow along ok so what I’m standing on right
    now is what it used to be a team track back in the day this is where the real
    cars would back up to and then all these jacent warehouses would come and unload
    their merchandise over here now it’s turned into a somewhat of a I guess a
    waiting area for that trial station right there
    Travel is a local commuter train between Miami and West Palm Beach so let me go
    ahead and get the journey started ready this is a original seaboard airline
    railroad you can still see the old ties right there old wooden types coming up
    to the team truck this is officially the end of it
    oh look at that wait a second try to throw date you okay
    so I see some writing 1922 Oh 1925 it says right there one nine to five yeah
    you can’t see that I don’t you guys can see it on here but the shadow doesn’t
    you see very well okay and then I guess somebody thought it was uh amusing to
    bring no train on here has trained it well that’s an accurate picture I mean
    it’s a half accurate picture because I don’t know who Sierra Road is but the
    this was used by our team originally this 1925 to my knowledge there was no
    diesel back then so yeah you guys saw the ties original seaboard airline
    railroad when I was a kid in the 80s I remember seeing some action on this line
    like great-grandfather used to bring used to live around here and they used
    to bring me the CDs these trains up during the day
    hence my love for trains right now and then you see the palm trees which is
    very stereotypical of man the Royal Palms swinging in the wind there’s a
    missing one that’s probably victim to I hurricane or lightning let me see if I
    can take a seaboard a souvenir no way that things really aren’t you got that yeah hopefully yeah I don’t think
    they’re gonna pull these rails wheels are about to be 100 years old so
    right now there are 94 years old not bad right
    I wish I’d look that good when I was ready for then I’ll still be a relevant
    archaeologist and have many more subscribers okay so I’m walking north
    right now we’re coming up on South East and I think that sub is 12 what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna go on
    historic aerials calm and see when you can see uh when was the last time action
    was on these tracks I’m guessing late 80s early 90s
    here you have the rails tripping right there I thought I was gonna be easier to
    chip it on that thing it’s on it south okay so this is the southeast tenth
    court in southeast 12 street pavement market interestingly enough this trial
    came into service 1989 so in 1989 they were still usage here that’s why there’s
    a paper wagon that says railroad crossing now if you guys had a question
    as to whether or not this track was abandoned this solves this answers your
    question there’s no way our trains coming through that there’s no way our
    train is coming to you okay this rail here probably came this
    way where that mound is right there between those trees go over there see
    the community yeah I’m see any pavement markings for
    that one that one’s off yeah no that’s all done it’s all routes and stuff over
    there okay so back to the task at hand a hill on the railroad sounds like a
    movie a hill on the railroad this are you go technic wow that thing
    is hot as hell oof like Nene degrees well the temperature is 88 degrees out
    that thing’s probably harder than 80 80 degrees by this year see port balance gotta love it and know
    it’s probably a switch down here somewhere somewhere I don’t see so I’m
    emotionally attached to this rule like I said because my great-grandfather’s
    written here so to me it’s like part of the family I grew up with it it’s still
    here I’d hate for it to be gone someday so that’s why I came to check up on it
    three so often you know coming make sure it’s still taking care of bringing some
    water some food okay there you have more poon even working right there but yeah
    it’s a whole lot of shrubbery did not come a quick huh yeah some serious shrubbery in there too we all please nearby so I’m not gonna go
    in there but we can but we can follow this one so this is another one Cheers there’s another one here – oh wow
    okay start off on this bus walk or go leave work early what got some vision acres along guys know what that is so this keeps
    going over here and I thought very much this track is in service and realizes
    these bosses wouldn’t be parked right let’s see if over there we can see some
    more remnants of it surely can Yeah right this aerial partner airplane noise but
    this area was driving back in the day with rail activity you could see how
    many Spurs was here the sports birds less than a block from each other that’s where that one ends right there
    you can see the cutoff and that used to be a loading dock for you
    and this one won’t start off right there criminal active you ask me okay now
    we’ll go back and see that Oh oh yeah we didn’t see this one the first
    time Wow it’s nuts all these rails sorry about that
    is real just in the camp Julia side side guys all the wasted
    potential all the history here gone I hate to see that at least they didn’t
    pull the rails and a mr. so here you can enjoy them so yeah like to give me a
    thumbs up comment below tell me anything or asking anything you’d like to know
    about it take care if you haven’t subscribed
