As it looks now, I'll keep posting pics as I get them. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't wearing everyone out with this type post since it is somewhat OT here.
It's sure alot of fun to visit the historical sites, research them, and try to figure out how the buildings and tracks were laid out. The more information that's known, the more satisfying the experience. There's MANY more sites to see and study in the Birmingham District! So far, it's just been ore mines. I'd like to find the TC&I Fossil ore mines, Sloss #1, and visit the Banner coal mine (where 128 miners perished in an explosion in 1911). Josh
, I'd encourage you to go exploring when you get home. It's interesting stuff for the industrial/RR history buff.
figured, I do remember the people who labored in these mines and wonder who they were and how they lived. They're the most interesting mystery of all.
, Any family history available relating to the topic at hand?
