The State of the Railroad Park is good

The current news surrounding Railroad Park is good with Birmingham City Council committees moving forward a proposal that would allowMayor Langford to pledge $5 million for construction of the 3,000 seat amphitheater. While unforseen circumstances have called for some changes from the master plan developed by Tom Leader Studio, it will still be a significant addition to Birmingham’s city center. There may be some that still think that the conversation about the park is premature.

One quick drive by the site in recent weeks though would lead you to have a different feeling about it – like progress since work began on the site December 23. It’s currently on schedule to be a Christmas/New Year’s gift to the city.

They should put a webcam up nearby so I can waste a similar amount of time like I do with the one following the demolition at Children's. Also, why is that old locomotive not going to this park instead of Sloss? Other than the obvious 'it's not done yet' aspect.
