    Train BLOCKS Railroad Crossing 10 Minutes

    August 8, 2019


    okay guys and gals railrol82 here
    and this is Saturday night around 11:30 p.m. this train has been stopped here
    for about five minutes before I began filming so let’s see how much longer it
    would stay stopped here from now on this is of facing east this is the East 6th Avenue crossing I
    don’t think you’d be able to distinguish it on the relay case here yeah it’s
    kind of dark oh yeah it’s the East 6th Avenue crossing i’ll include a Google
    Maps into this location behind me you can see the traffic it’s
    caused this crossing here has a WC hayes
    mechanical Bell and incandescent lights and I turned off my car cause it’s gonna
    eat my gas that gas is pretty expensive nowadays so duh duh duh it has not moved an inch train horn whistle this is time well spent here see the line of cars is not getting that
    long because people make u-turns and leave and really there isn’t much
    traffic on a Saturday night anyways but if this had been say rush hours in the
    morning or in the evening be a different tune this is nuts so that’s officially ten minutes well
    you guys have been seeing it for ten minutes but it’s been going on longer
    before before I began filming it like I said I’d been there for like five
    minutes so you can take my word for it but you know that at least 10 minutes
    it’s been blocking the crossing so yeah guys I have to conserve the battery on
    my phone it’s almost that at 8% so in the comments sorry in the
    description I’ll let you know when it finally let up so please subscribe or
    like thank you very much reviewing take care over and out

    Hurricane Damage to Abandoned Railroad Bridge

    August 8, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, this is RailROL82 here applause thank you, thank you okay I have a special announcement before the video I wanted to thank 2 of my subscribers Ken S and Michael Pressley They actually have donated a couple of dollars a month to help me in my travel fund As I said, I really don’t ask for much. All I ask for is a dollar or 2 a month I don’t want to become a millionaire, I don’t want to scam you guys just a dollar or 2 to get like $200 a month so I can travel to different states and cities so I can eventually document all the historic lines in the United States the website you would go to is Patreon.com/RailROL82 thank you very much for your help Hello ladies and gentlemen, Today, I’m going to be showing you a sad site. this is one of the it’s called the Bahia Honda bridge Bahia Honda is a Spanish term that means “deep bay” This was one of the original Oversea Railway bridges That Henry Flagler built back in the early 1900s and Let me see how safe it is okay, we’ll go that way I’m here with the Millenniumforce crew today and were doing some exploring here so yeah, so this is what this looks like from here and that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to put all them in my video. oh yeah well the other part is missing though so this I think used to be a bathroom yeah we’ll get to that later but were going thru here now I think I chose the wrong shoes to wear today as always bathroom Hey Roly, if I ever did that would you come out? One more time, what was the question? What was the question? I was back there, what happened? One day I’m going to come out here and bring a tent I’m going to pitch a tent and camp out one night I’ll be your camp buddy, yes sir! I would too. So you guys, that’s going to be another video we’re going to shoot. camping over here at the Bahia Honda bridge ha ha ha okay so here here’s another, guys look another casualty of Hurricane Irma the elastic on an underwear ill yeah wow that’s how high the water came up so yeah guys let me show you how high the water came up look at that yeah, the storm surge took part of the retaining wall. the bridge wall. that’s still closed, you can see Florida Highway Patrol enforcing that nobody crosses there and yeah Look at the piece that’s missing, it’s dangerous to be in there. Wow! Those people are going in there That’s a concrete slab that’s like 5 inches thick. People come here from all over the world. and you can see that the retaining wall was cracked there too. Okay guys so this bridge was built like the other ones in the early 1900s As I said the first train arrived in Key West in 1912 so this bridge was built like 19 0 something yeah and here there used to be stairs here, used to climb up wow! Not anymore! I mean the stairs are still there, it’s just there not in the same order they were. No, they’re gone they got destroyed by the ocean and yeah this was the stairs amazing I don’t know, let me see No, it’s cracked Let’s look a little East over here Okay guys and this is the part we’ve been waiting for! Look at that! Guys, I confess I have a fear of heights and falling so I’m not going to be getting any closer than this. So this is as close as I’ll be getting yeah, I’m going to try to You’re crazy ah okay so right underneath the pipe there’s an iguana 3 iguanas ha ha yeah okay, that’s enough of that I’m not a big fan of leaning over railings I’m going to this side oh I don’t know, it just broke off so originally the train came through the bottom and they installed the concrete decks after 1935 Labor Day Hurricane Okay guys, I’m making my way making my way downtown walking fast humming it’s a very treacherous walk here okay so it says Keep see what the sign says keep something keep away danger falling falling debris whoa, I almost took a trip! so this is where the retention wall was claimed by Hurricane Irma look at that look at the size of the re bar crazy So right here were basically at ocean level That’s the new bridge that was built in the RailROL82 year 1982 and then you got the our friend right here man, I’m being splashed. I hope it doesn’t mess up the camera. So yeah we got that one there I’m going to try to walk over here and pan out so I can give you a wider view of the bridge. okay and here we see some more hurricane Irma damage look at that I’m going to see what it feels like to jump on this still pretty sturdy. So yeah this was all removed by Hurricane Irma’s storm surge. It just whipped up on this for hours and hours and ate it away and then now I will give you a look at the new bridge a look at the old bridge So yeah, I’m going to be walking back that way and show you what the other side looks like so here they’re trying to fortify this again see they poured new concrete to hold the retaining wall whoa I think I’m going to need a cane to assist me going back up so on that wall there’s an iguana coming halfway up the wall. oh yeah? oh no, okay We’ll try to get that thank you A lot of friendly folks here this is my cane it’s like Jesus Christ walking up the mountain guys, think of all the trains that made their way thru here Hey Sarah made it back up, bless you! yeah, I even have a cane. right over there see it? yeah, that’s seaweed right? Either a whale or a Dolphin I’ve seen it right here There was some right there, a shark that’s crazy because you guys know that is one of the Top 10 beaches in the US right? Top 10 are you serious? The Bahia Honda state park beach tourist world wide come flock over there and then now we’re going to be heading to the damaged building This is going to be a treacherous journey guys Guess I wont be using those stairs And I’m going to be doing my impression of Moses here with the cane. Yeah we got stairs, there just not in good shape. okay Yeah I think its better, instead of going straight down, to walk at an angle. No just yeah okay were over here waiting to take a picture hell no I don’t go over there period. Oh God, this isn’t a bridge this isn’t a bridge technically it is, no it isn’t that’s a bridge this is a shelf its solid ground on here yeah there’s solid ground on this it’s not a bridge This is a world famous spot for pictures. I was just kidding about Korea, but yeah there’s people from all over the world here. I remember walking down these stairs all the way to the bottom my daughter came out here 20 years ago So yeah guys, I’m going to get the bathroom quickly while we wait for the group picture there. So yeah, join me in this treacherous journey as we walk diagonally now it becomes really steep cheese sorry okay so this is the much anticipated moment over here old pipe and this used to be the old bathroom back in the day I don’t want to go in there because that roof might collapse at any moment. people from far and wide. Some people built a snow man of rocks here. This used to be part of the roof. That was the other half over there. This is the beach Ok guys, thank you for coming along with me Please Subscribe or Like! Thank you very much for viewing. Over and out.
