I just stumbled upon this article from Model Railroader at http://www.bhamrails.info/Birmingham Belt Ry/MR 10 91 Bham Belt.pdf while searching google.com for maps of the B'ham Beltline. I'm anticipating being in the B'ham area soon and thought I might try to retrace some of the streets that the Frisco ran on just to get a feel in case I ever want to model industrial street tracks. I thought the article was interesting enough to mention here. I've often wondered how the Frisco got into downtown from East Thomas Yard. I can't really tell from the satellite images with google maps. It appears that I need to take 1st Ave. north to 12th street and head north. I hope the area isn't a bad part of town. I'm not sure just how far I'll venture.
