Electric Trains Bought and Sold

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.
