0-8-0s and 2-8-0s were common in the yards in both Atlanta and Birmingham. Birmingham also had some 0-6-0s still lingering. 

I Birmingham the Southern interchanged with just about everyone. You had the Frisco, IC, CG, AB&C, L&N, SAL (limited), and all the industrial roads. Not far from Birmingham to the north and west you also had the Columbus and Greenville on the old Georgia Pacific.
