PROGRAM: Historic Birmingham Mineral Railroad -- Past and Present
PRESENTER: James Lowery, BMRR Project Coordinator

The Historic Birmingham Mineral Railroad Signs Project (a project of the Mid-South Chapter of the R&LHS) is installing signs designating where the Birmingham Mineral Railroad (BMRR) ran throughout Birmingham and central Alabama during its century-long era. Thus far, a total of 138 signs have been installed in all 6 counties that were served by the BMRR in central Alabama, and more signs are scheduled to be installed.

This presentation will describe the Birmingham Mineral Railroad, will show maps and photographs from its steam engine era, will describe where it ran in the Birmingham area, will show how the former roadbed can still be seen, and will describe the BMRR Signs Project that is installing historic signs showing where the BMRR was located.

Door prize drawings will be held at the end of the meeting. Bring any railroad-related items you would like to provide for the door prize drawings.

Election of Board members and Officers will be held as part of this Annual Chapter Meeting.
