  • Gotta question for ya mate. You live in Florida right? So why's the city of West Palm beach called that when it's on the east coast of the state?

  • After watching many videos about railroads, all over the world, once the line is not being used anymore, the track and related items, are just left to rust and weather away.

  • Cool video I was watching Ohio central's train crew repairing and replacing the train trestle over raccoon Creek and they were also installing a second railroad tracks on top of the train trestle which I thought was pretty cool and I also took a short video of the abandoned buckeye central scenic railroad to where the track comes in from the tectum plant in Newark and it connects to the Columbus and Ohio river railroad by south sixth street I was standing on the track by the train trestle the north side of the tracks over the train trestle the crews looked like they had replaced the rails and ties over the train trestle over raccoon Creek and connecting to the Columbus and Ohio river railroad by the tectum plant and the south side on the tracks looking towards forry street and across forry street and down by Hopewell drive I would like to get the licking park district and Karen Jennings involved in expanding the buckeye scenic trail from Hopewell drive to across forry street crossing the train trestle over raccoon Creek and have it connect to south sixth street but leave enough train tracks left over so Ohio central's trains can still access the track to the tectum plant if you ever come to Newark Ohio I can show the abandoned buckeye central scenic railroad tracks by raccoon drive

  • If that switchstand is dated 1966, then it goes back to SAL days (as I'm sure you know). Video title should reflect that. Yes I'm a nitpicker. Don't hate me. I still like your videos.

  • I Was Just Gonna Say, That Place Looks Like a fun Place To go Hiking at, But When I Seen the Trash and The other Crap Around It, I Was Like
    N O P E

  • It's a shame that we see more sidings and spurs being abandoned and yet I haven't seen any new ones being built. Thanks to Roly we will always be able to remember the great importance these spurs served to many of America's railroads.

  • So all the politicians and public complain about traffic and then donโ€™t do anything to encourage rail use to put freight on rails and off roads

  • Another great video. Another bunch of spurs and sidings left to rust away. They could restore all that and store freight cars on those tracks.

  • That's sad there used to be businesses where that track went that is the outcome when progress happens and the first generation dies out then the second generation sells out.

  • I'd be seriously thinking about going back out there with some tools and getting that switch-stand. Seriously. It might be dated 1966, but the spur doesn't even show up on the USGS's map from 1974 https://ngmdb.usgs.gov/ht-bin/tv_browse.pl?id=741fbd7f8ae54bd2dd7015afe7593eab but it does show up on the one from '88 https://ngmdb.usgs.gov/ht-bin/tv_browse.pl?id=c8ad9920e79419ed35db1f5abed5f4d4 along with the highway 860 overpass. Going through the Google Earth time progression, you can really see both tracks of the spur around 2005, there's what looks like a string of box cars sitting on the south track in 2007. As always, keep up the good work, even if it saddens those of us who really appreciate the once vast railroad network of this great nation of ours.

  • 2 thumbs up as allways ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ It sucks to see this either because of outsourcing or more of these stupid big trucks clogging up our roads and highways. As for crossing equipment do you think it had warning lights or just a crossbuck? If you go alittle bit further southwest there is another abandoned spur that goes to a large warehouse that is marked Publix Markets. I wonder if this was abandoned close to the same time.

  • Maybe we should start a railroad,"paleontologist" group to dig up track fossils? Ground mats and paint brushes. Yeah, I'm weird.

  • Ahhhhh Roly……. I loves me some abandoned spurs!! They are one of my favorite things to see and explore. Oh the history they must have. Soooo great! Thanks for sharing and watch out for that switch in the grass! Lol!

  • I know where to find an abandoned spur! If you have an Instagram DM me for the awnser (@lirr_39_steamtrainproductions)

  • Gran registro amigo!! Las vias en parte fueron tapadas son la calle. Una critica constructiva.. trata de mover un poco mas despacio la camara asi se ven mejor los detalles. dejo mi like. saludos

  • Nice video of this spur. Who currently owns the mainline that this spur track diverges from? Why didn't you follow that other spur track that crosses 181st Street to the right of where you were standing? If you look at Google Maps and pull out of street view, you will see that this other spur has track visible for a while before it appears to be covered by dirt but you can still see the outline of one of the rails until the spur disappears at that building. You may have to go back to this location to follow that other spur track.

  • It is so sad seeing the neglect knowing so many people are in need and "those who" put up the original tracks should have kept responsibility over it for future.

  • It is sad to see that as more industries shut down or ship via truck. I wonder where that key is for that lock? Do those locks have a master key? If they do wouldn't that make them easy to pick? Like someone's out there plotting to pick switch locks.

  • Nice movie again m8, Choo choo. ๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿš‹๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿš‹

  • wow I remember when did this one R, like said before, CSX said aaaaaaahhhh no and more no you anit coming thru here no more , no sir lol . Thanks you rock buddy ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I love how the rails are still there! Mother nature is slowly but surely taking the track back. Very cool area! Great video Roly!

  • Wow another abandoned line, I canโ€™t believe they still have the switch there with the lock on it. A shame, but an awesome find!!! Be careful wearing Mandles instead of shoes because you donโ€™t know what you could step on especially thereโ€™s lots of venomous snakes there LOL
