    3 Unused Railroad Crossing Drive Along Tour

    August 26, 2019

    Okay guys so I’m on Kings Highway and
    I’m going to give you a tour of the end of the CSX S line. This, here we’re coming up on the crossing. This is going to be Northwest 10th Ave and these are the tracks right here. This is an old SAL, old Seaboard
    line it is now CSX but CSX hasn’t ran a train
    through here for years and nor do they have any plans to send another one, so
    right now I’m headed southbound on 10th Avenue you can see in some parts
    it’s there’s litter all over it that dead chickens, branches we’re coming up on a milepost here
    that’s a milepost 66 it says, I think it says end Homestead block I couldn’t tell with all the graffiti behind it. Relay case This is another crossing I believe this is Campbell Dr so in there the track curves and then
    there’s the old abandoned SAL station. It goes between those shrubs
    there. You’re going to be able to see it you got to see there’s a spur coming up
    there to the left is abandoned Train station built in the 1920s and
    that’s where all the tourists used to disembark and then here is abandoned
    spur, let me show you the train station and there’s the spur I actually have a video on this crossing
    that I did a walkthrough this is where the spur this ends and then right
    there there’s a wye you can see the switch in the distance
    I’m going to make a left here as soon as this guy passes. You can see the
    switch next to the crossing there and floor it okay I’m going to include a link for the video
    that’s at the end of the track so you can see what it looks like the last
    crossing it’s actually the last crossing in the United States and the end of the
    CSX s line so please subscribe or like thank you for viewing guys over and out

    Out of Service Railroad Crossing

    August 23, 2019

    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82
    here again your railroad archaeologist today I’m over here at the Redlands at
    this out of service or railroad crossing here I just noticed we have a gentleman
    sitting on the tracks but I’m guessing he knows they’re out of service yeah
    so me y’all get back to the crossing okay so this here is track view NorthEast right and then look at the grade crossing these wooden grade crossings
    are ancient the track itself was built in 1926 and then here all we got is this
    on dangling yield sign, cross bucks emergency contact info CSX transportation Crossing # 631139A Milepost there’s no customers left on this line
    so no no trains come down here and this is the East, sorry the Western side of
    crossing and then over here is the Eastern side of crossing so this is
    basically an agricultural area here as you can see it’s all nurseries and plants. I’m going to include a Google Maps link to this location so you guys can see I’m
    guessing this happened, you see that gap there? See the gap right there? that probably happened when Hurricane
    Irma came. Despite it having these holes here for the wind resistance,
    Hurricane Irma made it tilted. The yield sign and the cross bucks and I bet you guys know what that is if you’ve seen a lot of my videos, please comment below and I’ll tell you if you’re right
    or not so yeah Here you can see the date but I think, let me see oh yeah 1925 right there 1925 75 pound rail alright you guys, thank you very much for coming along with me on this tour. Please subscribe or like, over

    Unused Railroad Crossing Activated 1st Time in Years

    August 22, 2019

    Ladies and gentlemen this might be the
    last time you guys might ever hear this Crossing activated this is obviously
    a malfunction. I don’t know if it was caused by Hurricane Irma but
    yeah this crossing here is unused right it’s the CSX S line Homestead
    subdivision milepost 60.67 got a safe tran systems signal base it’s an ungated
    gated crossing but you can see that the lights are going off now obviously uh
    there hasn’t been a train here for years this is track view Southwest as you
    can see over there there’s our shrubs covering the tracks this is track view north-east You can hear that E dinger Then you got the relay case there. safe tran signal base as well I’ve never
    heard this crossing activated before so my first time and this will probably be
    the last time cuz as I said CSX hasn’t sent a train here in years nor do they
    have any plans to there’s actually been talks of them trying to sell this line
    or do something with it but yeah as you can see this this rail here is from 1926
    was which was when the line was originally built 1925 no no 1926 it was that’s the year was built in 1926
    to promote tourism to homestead which is just about maybe 10 15 miles down that
    way see what else can I tell you about the
    line yeah it was originally built for for passenger trains that was
    discontinued in about sixties or seventies then it was
    Freight This is an agricultural area here so there’s no industry other than
    strawberries and avocados and as you can see there’s a nursery there this is what
    it’s what it mostly is the nurseries and mangos avocados limes fruits vegetables
    things of that nature let me give you one last shot as I said
    this is not gonna be, you’re not you’re probably not ever going
    to see us again so this will be the way we sign off on this video a tribute to
    this crossing this is Southwest two hundred and thirty second street alrighty

    hello ladies and gentlemen, RailROL82 here. Your railroad archaeologist so I’m over here at the CSX Homestead
    subdivision on you I tell you Rico drive processing I did a tour of this crossing
    last year and today I’m gonna show you what this time looks like now that it’s
    officially out of service here we can see some girls on it so Moodle right
    there this thing was built this is facing
    south west facing north east the sign was built in 1927 looking for a real
    with the date on it 75 pound rail built by a Marilyn Marilyn steel I do not see
    a date though but yeah I know for a fact that was built in 1927 and you can see
    the old wooden ties and if I stand on this line okay it’s mostly gross just
    see what it feels like to have been on this line this is what it was what it
    would have felt like see a nice residential area next to here and
    agriculture it’s on my right I’m gonna include a little map into that crossing
    so you guys can know where I’m at and this is facing north east so you see
    over here we can find a date on the rails yep
    1926 right there 1926 built by the seaboard airline railroad design came
    from my Annie from 5-9 the International Airport and do you ignore that it came
    to haul away from from Central Florida to homestead homestead is a city that is
    about a few miles south of here just to put it into perspective on this
    Yurika drive here this crossing is 1 84th Street and this line ends at around
    320 something 330 something Street so this is our about 20 miles away or so
    from the end of the line you can see these rails pure rust that’s a shame because if these reels
    could talk I’m sure they’d have some very interesting stories to tell and yeah there we see the gateless
    crossing it’s really case on the other side so yeah guys that’s this crossing
    and I’m gonna continue further south to Seoul I thank you for coming along with
