Birmingham Terminal Railway
Title:  Birmingham Terminal Railway
Description:  BHRR Northbound Taconite Train BH-1 General rumbles through East Thomas, Al. on their way to Flint Ridge for delivery to U.S. Steel, BNSF delivers the taconite to BHRR at East Thomas Yard where BHRR comes with interchange, usually taconite empties & sometimes general freight for BNSF, the BHRR retrieves taconite loads that go to U.S. Steel. BNSF runs these taconite trains as U-KEEBIR & U-SEMBIR, sometimes an empty coal train gets delivered as a U-EOLBIR & gets loaded at Ensley or Birmingport & gets sent back north to Eola, Illinois loaded with coal, its an unusual move where coal goes north loaded, but usually runs south loaded & north empty
