Twin Seam Mining Company

Alabama Industrial

The Twin Seam Mining Company served various coal pits near Kellerman, Al, east of Birmingham. The company employed several hard-working Shay locomotives to haul loaded coal hoppers up a grade for mainline interchange. Coal trucks brought the coal to the railroad loading facility. Sometime in the early 1960s, a wooden trestle gave way underneath one of the locomotives and the rail operation and its rugged Shays were subsequently scrapped.
