Remarks & Notes 
Huntsville is nicknamed "The Rocket City," which seems to be a fitting name as the DPU of a Scherer coal train shoves by the US Space and Rocket Center, also home of Space Camp. The gigantic Saturn V rocket which dominates the background is a replica, while the original Saturn V test rocket is displayed in separated stages indoors at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration, seen to the right of the locomotive.

Alabama may not be considered the most scenic state, or have a particularly exciting railroad scene, but it's where my roots are, and I'm proud to represent my home state through these scenes of trains in the Heart of Dixie.
