Birmingham Rail & Locomotive Company, Inc.

In 1899, Birmingham Rail & Locomotive Company emerged out of the need to maintain steam locomotives. During the economic boom after WWII, Carlisle Jones joined the company and grew it into a supplier for the railroad and industrial communities. The locomotive service business continued, but the rail and track material sales surpassed the founding operation’s revenue in the 1950s.

Today the fourth generation of the family business continues the tradition with brothers, Monroe Jones and Carlisle Jones, Jr. as President and Vice-President respectively.
