The Birmingham Terminal Railway (BHRR) is a 75.9-mile private railroad connecting Port Birmingham on the Black Warrior River through Norrell Junction to approximately thirty industrial and energy-sector customers in Birmingham, Fairfield, Woodward and Bessemer.

The railway was founded in 1899 as the Birmingham Southern Railroad and reorganized under its current name after it was acquired by the Pittsburgh, Kansas-based Watco Companies in 2011.

In 2018 Watco rederessed their WAMX 3881 locomotive in a green and gold UAB Blazers theme.
