B&MC

Unread postby DT&I » Sat Jul 07, 2012 5:17 pm

Birmingham & Mississippi Central railroad was formed in 1987 when some ex-L&N lines were connected by a wealthy business owner. Since then it has been looked at by a couple railroads....
Since then the B&MC is being looked into as a joint operation br the TSCR and HPR.
Interchanges:
HPR, NS - Birmingham
TSCR, NS, CSX - Mobile

Roster:
SD40-2 - 2400 - 2416
GP40-3 - 6848 - 6862
SW1500 - 495 - 499
GP10 - 457 - 463
SD45R - 388 - 392

Train P-MOBI-1 has put 15 cars on the ground outside Meridian on its way to Birmingham, no one is hurt but the line will be closed for a couple hours.

I can't sell it to him becuase the TSCR does not currently own the B&MC.
