Crowded at Birmingham Junction

Spring 2001. Birmingham, Missouri.

BNSF 9833 works as a DPU on an east bound coal train as a Norfolk Southern train and another BNSF train wait their turn to roll through Birmingham Junction.  The BNSF's Brookfield Subdivision and the Norfolk Southern's Kansas City District share tracks through Birmingham.

I took this back in the day when Birmingham Junction was easily accessible. The last time I was there a couple of years ago the road was closed off and no trespassing signs were posted everywhere.

This image was captured on Kodak 400 Royal Gold film and scanned on a Nikon Coolscan film scanner. Post processing was done in Adobe Photoshop.
