Unused Railroad Crossing

August 13, 2019


Hello ladies and gentlemen we have another unused railroad crossing here today in Southwest 200 Street This here as you can see this track isn’t in very good condition. It looks like a third-world country around here Right? This place is an agricultural area it’s all full of nursuries, fruits agriculture whatever have you? Those branches there are debris from Hurricane Irma So this here is a Southwest view of the track right. This is the CSX homestead subdivision which was built in 1927 and then here We have a safe tran signal base a safe tran gate mechanism safe tran lights all around, we got one hanging reco light there from Hurricane Irma And lets try to cross the line So this relay case as you can see has power. There’s a light up top And then further down the line you can see that it’s obstructed which makes no difference because it’s an unused line so See what we got on this side so Im going to include a Google maps link so you guys can see for yourself where im at This side it’s same same deal. We got a safe tran signal base safe tran gate mechanism Reco crossing lights the crossing gate We got safe tran Lights all around here too and an E dinger up top See the Emergency contact info here CSX S line homestead subdivision mile post 57.87 And then once again, that’s the South sorry North East view obstructed by the tree there wood SCL crossties and the Southwest view Which looks like a third world country Alright guys, Please subscribe or like Thank you very much for viewing Follow me on instagram at railrol82 over and out

    I agree, it does look like a third world country.

    I am surprised that there still power in these cases, and even more surprised that the line is still there. Is there any talk to lifting the line or do they plan just to leave it in hope that someday it will be needed. ?

    It's so sad these tracks are no longer in use. They helped deliver or pick up goods at one time. Must cost a lot to keep them operational all the time. Thanks for all your hard work, keep it up. BTW, I put another new vid on YouTube Wednesday afternoon, it's a new way of doing things with my iPad.

    I see that you are making your way down south, crossing by crossing. Hopefully you may encounter something other than the usual Safetran Systems. Have you every tried exploring the old F.E.C Line-turned-Busway? There may be a good chance that some remains of the former F.E.C. can be found!

    did this line ever offer freight service, no spurs
    beyond the quarries, the
    watet plant and pro build,
    even the homestead
    station doesn't show a
    freight spur or team dock?

    It's was part of Gold Coast RR Museum. Along the way I found a strange bridge or not in the middle of no where when I was exploring google maps. Here's the link:https://www.google.com/maps/@25.6245302,-80.4080447,187a,35y,292.93h,13.61t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en
    For the Museum:https://www.google.com/maps/@25.6200584,-80.4028689,750a,35y,161.97h,22.07t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en
    In front I think the main entrances there were removed railroad track: https://www.google.com/maps/@25.615748,-80.3973101,3a,60y,278.4h,85.6t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sAHQIanvwLuOZlBBReh4L5A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en

    But no sign of voodoo! There's something forlorn about finding a crossing out in the middle of nowhere, and you can tell that it hasn't seen a train in a very long time. But hey, the power's still on!

    Great Find! I always think it's abandoned rather than unused.
