This is one of the two active coke plants in Birmingham in 2003.  This property is included in the HABS-HAER survey completed in Birmingham in the 1990's.  This photo image is from the Library of Congress web site and can be accessed with a search of "by products birmingham".

The photo at the right was taken by the author in October, 2003, and shows the ABC plant switcher working the yard at the plant.  The loco is lettered, "ABC Coke/Drummond Co., Inc."

There are a lot of things to share about this topic in Birmingham, and some good resources on the internet.  I will make an effort to tie some of this together in the following pages.  (Under Construction)
