      Red Mountain Press has announced the forthcoming publication of a new
      title on Birmingham (AL) railroads. "Birmingham Rails: The Last Golden
      Era", co-authored by Marvin Clemons and Lyle Key, will be a collection
      of personal and contributed narrative with extensive photography of
      Birmingham railroads from World War II to the arrival of Amtrak.

      "Birmingham Rails" is dedicated to Frank Ardrey, who has written a
      personal foreword to the book, and will feature a number of Frank's
      classic black & white photos from the David Salter collection. Other
      contributing photographers include David Salter, Hugh Comer, Dick
      Sharpless, Parker Lamb, Dennis Conniff, David Ingles and Don Phillips.
      Also included are many previously unpublished images by local
      photographers from the Birmingham area.

      The book will feature chapters on every Class I, industrial, and
      shortline railroad operating in the Birmingham railroad district from
      the 1940's through 1960's. An extensive chapter on industrials will be
      contributed by Tom Lawson, a respected authority on Birmingham's
      colorful industrials and Alabama logging railroads.

      "Birmingham Rails" can be previewed on RMP's website at
      www.birminghamrails.com <http://www.birminghamrails.com/> . The
      limited edition will ship in September 2007 and can be ordered through
      the website at a pre-publication discount.
