Remarks & Notes 
CSX 144 is tucked into the siding as 145 booms past behind the usual B36-7s. Once upon a time Milstead was the location of a junction with the Birmingham and Southeastern Railway which connected Milstead with Tallassee, location of a large cotton mill. Even earlier, the line had been named Union Springs and Northern, and connected Union Springs with Eclectic. A through truss bridge over the Tallapoosa River just north of Milstead was still in place last time I visited (2002?).

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
