CSXT'S Birmingham Mineral Sub

Alabama Southern Railroad Southbound Freight Train Z776 running via trackage rights over CSXT'S Birmingham Mineral Sub at Bessemer, Al. This train used to be the KCS run from Artesia & Tuscaloosa to Birmingham, but now is operated by WATCO/ Alabama Southern Railroad & usually runs with these WAMX SD40R'S/SD40-2'S & sometimes runs with WAMX GP35'S in former Bangor & Aroostook paint & also they have a HLCX SD40 still in Detroit Edison paint & some NREX SD40-2'S still in UP paint & some HLCX SD40'S still in Conrail paint
These WAMX units haven't been running but maybe a year now on the former KCS run to Artesia & back to Birmingham. I miss the KCS power that used to run on this train daily, but these are a change at least. I have at least 1 other shot I uploaded with the WAMX power on this train. Thanks for the rating
