The Historic Birmingham Mineral Railroad Signs Project is installing signs at various locations around the Birmingham area and in surrounding cities where the 253-mile-long Birmingham Mineral Railroad ran during its century-long era (1884-1988) so that people will become more aware of that part of this area’s history. See the “Project Summary” and the “Project Description” pages for additional information about the signs project and the Birmingham Mineral Railroad.
Project Name: Historic Birmingham Mineral Railroad Signs Project
Organizations Involved: The national Railway & Locomotive Historical Society (R&LHS) is the organization that receives tax-deductible donations to the project. The funds are then provided to the R&LHS local Mid-South Chapter housed in Leeds, Alabama. The signs project is a project of the Mid-South Chapter. The Birmingham Mineral Railroad was a system of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Company, and the Louisville and Nashville Railroad Historical Society has provided the L&N logo for use in the signs project.
Project Coordinator: James Lowery, a member of the Board of Directors of the R&LHS Mid-South Chapter, is the volunteer coordinator of the project. He may be contacted through the “Contact Us” page.
