We lost Alex Nuckols in August 2008. His interest
in trains and local industrial history was deep and he will be missed.
Birmingham industrial and rail history folks lost a great friend
(8/30/08) in the passing of Alex Nuckols. A resident of Hoover, Alex
was a gentleman who loved industrial history, railroads and was an avid
collector and historian. He will be missed. One of Alex dreams and
passions was to see a railroad built for the Red Mountain Park in
Birmingham. It is hoped that this project will continue to move forward
which would make Alex very happy indeed.
Among many talents and interests, Alex was a gifted
artist. This image shows his vision for a Red Mountain Railroad which
could operate in part on the former TCI roadbed along the north face of Red
Mountain. Alex wanted everyone to be able to share his deep interest in
Red Mountain's history and its many resources.
