    1.49 The Railroad (은파호수공원) | Xuffed678/Gabriel Ross

    August 13, 2019


    Hey guys, it’s Gabriel.
    So this is the last episode before my Season Finale and there’s definitely a lot of things
    to show you guys. So let’s get right into it.
    So it’s the last weekend that I have with my mom.
    I go straight from Busan to Gunsan. I arrived, I met up with my mom and my aunt
    화자 이모 and from there we went to actually go meet my other aunt, 윤자 이모 and–
    –She’s the one who cut my hair. She actually works at a place called 네네
    치킨. 네네 치킨 I’ve never had before.
    I’ve had 노랑통닭 which is really really good.
    I love the chicken there, but it always has bones in it.
    And I just–I get so lazy and for some reason like in Korea I feel like
    eating anything with bones is just such a hassle.
    Koreans love to eat fish and there’s just like fish bones everywhere.
    And I’m just like, “I’m not eating anything, I’m just eating bones and there’s like a little
    thing of meat.” So we decided to get boneless chicken from
    네네 치킨. The food was amazing.
    I love 네네 치킨 now. Love it.
    Hello. Today is Friday April 1st.
    12:06am. We are eating, what is it called?
    네네 치킨. I guess these are fries.
    We got mozzarella sticks, corn, some radish. More corn.
    More radish. This is um…
    Soy sauce fried. This is some spicy.
    And honey mustard. All looks very good.
    The next day was pretty eventful. Behind my grandma’s house is a place that’s
    very very special. And I had no idea that there was a connection
    between the two until my mom told me. Ever since I was a little kid I always saw
    this picture of my oldest brother. He’s like playing in a grass field.
    My mom told us when we were younger that he was actually playing next to a railroad track.
    To find out that this railroad track was the exact spot right behind my grandma’s house,
    I was like “Oh my gosh, I have to go!” Hello. We’re at a very special place right now. I know it’s a little bit windy so hopefully
    you guys can hear me. That’s my mom and 화자 이모, my aunt.
    This is my grandma’s house. This used to be like a field.
    To grow something. You remember Immanuel was playing?
    There was water. There was water?
    Yeah. This used to grow rice apparently.
    Immanuel was playing over there. My oldest brother, Ian was playing here. 선이 삼촌 carried Larry over here. Like this.
    Remember? Yeah.
    That was here. I just saw a picture.
    Say “Hi”. How many years ago was it?
    Larry was 4? Yeah maybe.
    I think so. Yeah that was a long time ago.
    How old was I? You was uh…
    Just a one-year old probably. Maybe 1?
    Ok then…that was almost 24 years ago. Yeah.
    Yeah. Twenty-four years later, we’re back here.
    Back here. On the tracks.
    Yeah. Bye!
    Bye? Why are you saying bye? I want to take a couple of pictures on the
    track. Hi!
    It was so great to be able to be on the railroad. It’s not a famous place at all, but to see
    something that you’ve seen your entire life and then to be in that area.
    Like this is, 24 years later. Another Ross kid is on the railroad.
    It was nice to be there with my mom and my aunt.
    I felt like I was standing in the presence of time and history.
    And to know that my family was once like a long long time ago, like it was just really
    really cool. And to also find out that the place was right
    behind my grandma’s house, like… I just never knew there was that many connections
    to this one place. I do feel bad now though, because now my sister’s
    the only one that doesn’t have a picture with the railroad, but– –If she comes to visit, we can work something out. Oh there’s a train. Is there a train coming?
    No look the train’s coming! Wow the train’s the coming.
    Train is coming… It was a very quick train.
    감사합니다! 예, 감사합니다 Korea!
    That was nice. And then after that, I got a tour of my grandma’s
    house. This is my second time here.
    On the funeral day we came here… to drop off her picture and her name plaque. What’s 흙집? The mud house.
    Oh mud house. Yeah you remember the other day we went to–
    이모 took us to Korean traditional house? Yeah.
    They made like this, we used to use. What’s it called? 흙집?
    흙집. Instead of cement…
    Yeah. We use mud.
    Mix it. You see these leaves?
    Mix together and put it on there. Use it as cement wall.
    It’s been a long time. Look at the inside.
    They used wood. That used to be electric.
    And this doesn’t come apart and the rain doesn’t come through?
    No. They’re strong. How long did she live here? Maybe over 30 years.
    So you lived–oh you didn’t live here. Did you? No, you lived here.
    No. After my father died, they moved here.
    Am I allowed to use my shoes? No.
    No? Ok. That’s 윤자 이모.
    You see there, 춘자 이모 over there? 춘자?
    Who’s 춘자 again? My sister.
    This one right? Yeah.
    And at the bottom, the black and white, that’s your grandma when she was young.
    Oh this one? No behind.
    This one? Yeah that one.
    That is your grandma. She was a teenager.
    Really? They look exactly the same.
    Yeah. Underneath that is me and my older sister.
    And who is this? That’s your grandma’s friend.
    Oh and this is a friend? Yeah.
    Oh. This is you, and grandma, and 선이 삼촌?
    Mhm. Is this this house?
    Uh yeah. Oh look.
    They had this picture of Ian and Larry? Mhm.
    선이 삼촌, my uncle with Ian and Larry my two older brothers.
    화자 이모 and who? 미자…
    미자 이모? 미자 이모.
    Really? Oh yeah, I can see it.
    This looks recent. That’s maybe about 10 years old.
    Oh really? Maybe 7 years old.
    This was the picture I carried for the funeral. Come on, let’s go. That’s my uncle’s company over there. 삼촌!
    선이 삼촌! Oh, my uncle!
    How did you know? 이모 spotted.
    He walks like your grandpa. You said he walks like my grandpa?
    Yeah, 이모 said your grandpa, my father. 안녕하세요. My mom was asking him, “Oh do you remember taking pictures with the kids a long time ago on the railroad track?” At first he didn’t remember, but then when
    he thought about it, he remembered. Do you want a picture? Say “Bye!” Bye! Yay! So that was all very very special. It felt like a full circle moment.
    Now I have my own memories of Korea and it’s even more special that it does kind of shadow
    the memories that my brothers had. And that’s something that I hold very dear.
    And so that night, it was the last trip that my aunt ended up taking us on.
    We went to a place called 은파호수공원. Which means “Eunpa Lake Park”.
    I’m here with 혜민이, and 화자 이모, and my mom.
    We’re looking at the lights on this bridge. They have a dancing fountain.
    A fountain that moves to the music. Oh summer time.
    In summer. Oh.
    Maybe in May. They start in May. 추워? Just a little bit.
    This is called “Love of Door”. Picture point.
    Oh, I see. You see the love mark?
    Oh yeah yeah. Are we going to take a picture? Hi! 반가와요! 사랑의문! What’s 사랑의문? “Love of Door”. Oh my gosh.
    Which way I go? Tch, bye! This…means we put our hand in it. But why?
    What is it supposed to do? Test of love.
    My hand doesn’t fit at all, because of this. My hand fits good. Love love love love! I guess musical guests sing down here.
    You said live? Mhm, live. 가자. So now we are nearing the end. I honestly can’t believe that it’s already been almost 50 episodes.
    I just really appreciate everyone that’s been watching. I hope you’re as excited as I am to see all of this sort of wrap up and come together
    and just be…finished. If you like this video please give it a thumbs

    August 13, 2019


    Hello ladies and gentlemen, you guys are looking at an abandoned FEC spur and switch over here, just North of SW 8th ST There is the switch right there. And here is where the spur began. This actually used to go into a lumber yard. That was between SW 4th ST and SW 8th ST. It was just South of SW 4th ST and just North of SW 8th ST It is now replaced with a Wal-Mart And the spur used to go into here. To the side of the lumber yard. It’s truly a sad site. The FEC used to be a pretty abundant around here. It used to go all the way to US 1 Southbound over there and it met up with the mainline that ran parallel to US 1 all the way to Homestead Southward which was also the Overseas Railroad In 2004, it ran all the way to Bird Rd. And then as of 2004 this way the rails barely been used. Because there’s no more customers on the line. So yeah guys as you can see there you go. one last look at the spur.

    Weeds and Railroad Crossings Don’t Mix (MU CAFNR)

    August 13, 2019


    IT HAPPENS ALL TOO OFTEN, A
    CAR CROSSES A RAILROAD TRACK AT PRECISELY THE WRONG TIME. You never win against a train. SHANE RILEY OF THE COLT
    RAILROAD SAYS, MAINTAINING GOOD VISIBILITY AT RAILROAD
    CROSSINGS IS KEY. ONE CONSTANT PROBLEM THAT CAN
    HINDER VISIBILITY IS WEEDS. Its a constant battle on the
    railroads, always, weeds are a big thing to fight. RAILROADS HAVE ENLISTED HELP
    FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI IN THEIR WAR AGAINST
    WEEDS. REID SMEDA, WEED SCIENTIST IN
    MU COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, FOOD AND NATURAL RESOURCES,
    WORKS WITH THE RAILROADS TO DEVISE BETTER STRATEGIES TO
    COMBAT WEEDS. We are approached by a lot of
    different people to try to find the best possible mixtures to control weeds
    before they come up, or once they do come up, to manage these weeds. ALTERNATING HERBICIDES IS
    ONE OF THE MAIN METHODS TO COMBAT WEEDS.
    MANY RAILROADS ARE COMFORTABLE USING MIXTURES
    THAT WORK, BUT USING THE SAME WEED KILLER REPEATEDLY CAN
    LEAD TO HERBICIDE-RESISTANT PLANTS. Our job is to tell them, Look,
    when the mixtures are still working, now is the time to switch to another
    program so we can keep effectively managing weeds. WEED CONTROL IS A CRITICAL
    PART OF SAFETY. COLLISIONS ARE NOT THE ONLY
    PROBLEM THAT WEEDS PRESENT TO RAILROADS.
    MANY TRAINS CREATE SPARKS ON THE TRACKS, WHICH COULD
    IGNITE DRY VEGETATION. THERE ARE MORE THAN TWO
    HUNDRED THOUSAND RAILROAD CROSSINGS IN THE U.S., AND
    WEEDS CAN VARY FROM TOWN TO TOWN.
    THATS WHY MU RESEARCH IS UNDER WAY THROUGHOUT THE
    MIDWEST. We have several trial locations,
    not only in Missouri but western Kansas, northern Illinois, even
    Arkansas. WEED MAINTENANCE IS
    EXPENSIVE. THE GOAL OF MU RESEARCH
    IS TO CONTROL VEGETATION AND REDUCE COSTS WHILE KEEPING
    SAFETY AT THE FOREFRONT. You gotta make time for safety
    and sometimes safety gets expensive, but it has to be done. FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF
    MISSOURI, I’M KENT FADDIS REPORTING.

    Close Call: Two women narrowly escape death on railroad tracks

    August 12, 2019


    Two Indiana women are lucky to be alive after
    they were run over by a coal train when they found themselves trapped on a railroad bridge. This incredible video footage shows the women
    literally running for their lives before laying down in the middle of the tracks. The train, which has a mere ten inches of
    clearance above the railroad ties, miraculously passes harmlessly over them. After the train stopped, both women stood
    up and ran away and apparently the only injury was a stubbed toe. Yeah, that’s what you call a lucky escape.
