locked Re: Birmingham Terminal Station - how was it accessed by various railroads

Another possibility..

Contract 1123?

Places like Birmingham can create a lot of documentation because most contracts were bi-lateral even though multiple railroads were all in the same project.

I am curious how the through passenger train services accessed Birmingham Terminal Station. For instance, for the SLSF - Southern services, I would think that Frisco arrived and departed the north end and the connecting Southern trains used the south end, so those trains were essentially a through operation. What about Southern's own through trains such as The Southerner and the Pelican. Did they head-in/back-out or back-in/head-out of the south end, or did they use different lines on the way in than the way out so that those trains could operate through? What about the Illinois Central - Central of Georgia through trains?

I appreciate any help with this topic.
