It's always a great day when you can catch one (two) of KCS's Southern Belle painted locomotives! But catch one on a beautiful, blue sky filled day like today, and it's almost mind blowing! This Southbound train on NS tracks makes its way past Birmingham's Amtrak Station.
A North bound CSX train approaches the Amtrak Station in Birmingham, AL as is moves under the signal bridge. Notice the NS trains headlights in the distance stopped waiting for the CSX train to crossover.
The SOU 630 2-8-0 is on the head end of NS 956 as it heads into Whitney, AL on the NS Alabama Great Southern (AGS) main. This is a transfer run from the TVRM in Chattanooga, TN to Birmingham, AL for two weekends of excursions for the new NS 21st Century Steam Program.
