locked Re: Locos and Traffic on the Atlanta-Birmingham Line

Generally, Southern Railway did not use sub-division or district names. In the employee timetable for the Birmingham Division, it is simply 'Between Austell and Birmingham - Westbound' or 'Between Birmingham and Austell - Eastbound'.

By the way, does anyone know what the subdivisions were for the Atlanta-Birmingham line?

I've been trying to figure out locomotive classes and traffic were common on the Southern's Atlanta-Birmingham line in the late 40s and 50s. I don't have a copy of Richard Prince's book, so I'm having to make do with sources like steamlocomotive.com - not exactly ideal. 

I know only that the Southerner and the Kansas City-Florida Special used the line, but not much more.
