Islamorada Machines

I very much enjoy exploring the Florida Keys, and was staying down there this past Winter break. On one exploration we found these old machines that, after researching turned out that they were used in the construction of the Overseas Railroad which was the original means of transporting goods up and down the keys and was abandoned some time after completion far from key west. It makes me wonder how many of these types of machines are scattered through out the keys. The biggest and baddest of the machines I found on Islamorada was the 1918 Buckeye Traction Ditcher.

This last photo was taken in Key Largo, the day before; It’s of my fixed gear and one of the first of a growing set devoted to my bike, Rabecca Black.
