    There are so many of these unused crossings in Miami. I wonder if the same goes for the CSX Herbert subdivision between Brandywine, Maryland and the chalk point generating station because that line receives less traffic than the CSX popes creek subdivision between Bowie, Maryland and the Morgantown generation station.

    Do you think it's possible that if they clear the track of the trees do you think it's is possible for a train to use this track

    Let's hope this line gets a purpose before it is abandoned.

    Any voodoo evidence around this crossing? Maybe you can get a witch doctor to conjure up a train or two on this line!

    Didn't Seaboard have a costumer that provided Produce for shipment for the North? I remember stories of Fruit Growers Express Boxcars being spotted on this line back in the day.

    Who put the bolder next to the relay case? I saw FEC 429 earlier 2day with a brand new paint job and horn. I didn't get a chance to get a pic of this locomotive. It just appeared.

    The color of the 429 is midnight blue and it says Florida East Coast.

    Horn is the same as the 510 and the 508.

    Isn't homestead residential? It'd be pretty good if Tri Rail got their hands on this line.

    Nice video man,I really like these Abandoned Railroad track videos that you do. Btw does FEC run on CSX tracks to or do they have their own lines

    According to the FRA, the line gets rare use every week. 1 train about every 7 days, so it might not actually be unused.
