Transfer Caboose

Transfer Caboose 1327 at Birmingham, Alabama in July 1977.

This is Birmingham, specifically, the old Frisco Birmingham Belt yard between 14th and 18th Streets. After the tracks were removed, the city purchased the property from BNSF to build Railroad Park:


And that is Woodward Iron #38 in the photo. At that time the Frisco was allowing the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum to use the yard to store equipment — later the museum moved to its present location in Calera, Alabama where #38 is on display to the public.


Special thanks to Donnie Strickland.
