Review of Trains of the Birmingham Southern DVD

Exciting train action on the Birmingham Southern Railroad featuring BSRR switching, locals and road freights out of the Birmingham Southern's Elliot Yard. Birmingham Southern's diesel power in this program consists of: SW1000, SW1001, SW1500, MP15DC, SD9 and GP38-2's. Witness the Port Birmingham Branchline in action as long BSRR road freights are seen transporting bulk commodities such as coal, coke, and iron ore products. Plus a trio of ex DM&IR classic high hood SD9's are seen with unit coal trains that originate at the Oak Grove Mine and are transported to the Warrior & Gulf Navigation Company's rail and barge terminal at Port Birmingham, Alabama. Footage era 2002/2006.
