    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
