|USS Fairfield Works|
|Blast Furnace at Fairfield|
North of here we passed the overgrown ruins of Tennessee Coal and Iron's Ensley Works, later USS. I could make out through the vegetation the Ensley mixer, another of my almost complete scratch building projects. Shortly thereafter were at the Thomas Coke Works, again overgrown and inaccessible, however, I could see some of the structures from my coke works I have been building. Everything is close together in Birmingham, so this took us only an hour or so to visit all these sites.
