Offhand (I am at work now--no timetables around) I cannot think of where Jasper, Ala. is. What larger cities would it be between? That might help somebody answer your question.

Since you are asking this question on the Southern Ry Forum, you want to know when the last SOUTHERN RY train stopped in Jasper, Ala. SR trains #1 & 2, Sheffield-Birmingham were dropped about October 27, 1951.
Now, if you are interested in the FRISCO trains, you should probably ask your question on their Forum. The closest date I can give you for the Frisco Kansas City-Birmingham run is probably "late" 1967(after August), which is when the Frisco issued their last passenger timetable. The trains were #101 & 102, the "Southland", which ended Frisco system wide passenger service.
