The Arkansas and Missouri Railroad is an independent, Class III railroad serving a 139 mile corridor from Fort Smith, AR to Monett, MO. Click here to see a full system map. Together with our affiliates, we are committed to continually improving our transportation services for the long-term success of the Company and the communities we serve.

We are somewhat unique in our industry in offering a wide breadth of transportation services and choices. Our bread-and-butter railcar freight business provides our customers with choice through three Class I railroad interchanges (BNSF, UP and KCS). Additionally, we can supply railcars for our direct customers’ or others’ use on reasonable terms.

Working with several business partners, we also move freight in tandem with barges traveling the Arkansas River. For customers not directly located on our line, our affiliates and third parties provide rail service through transloading of goods to and from trucks.

Our affiliate, Ozark Transmodal, Inc. (OTI) supplies these transloading services at Fort Smith and Springdale, AR with specially designed facilities. OTI can also store customers’ goods in a modern, 40,000 square foot warehouse in Fort Smith that is easily accessible to interstate highways. With OTI’s local truck hauling services, we offer a full range of logistics choices to our valued clients

  • We rode the Springdale to Winslow excursion. Picked Nov 10 and the leaves were past prime so the scenery was a bit brown and dull. Occasional red/yellow tree. Pretty trashy along the tracks, shame on ...  more »
  • My wife and I took the Springdale to Van Buren trip on March 9, 2016. We rode in car 106. All in all, this was a nice, pleasant trip. The conductors were nice and gave local information about the area the train went through. You can purchase pop and water. You can also bring your own, as well as snacks. You will have a three hour stop at Van Buren. This gives you time for lunch and to meander around the shops. There is a free trolley ride waiting when you disembark. The time gos by faster than you think so don't spend too much time in one place if you want to see all the shops. Going in early March, before the trees are leafed out, allowed for better views. We saw several deer. Another three weeks later would have been a better choice when dogwood and red bud would have been in bloom. This was a nice way to spend the day. Arkansas is my favourite State!
  • Great customer service, all the employees were so nice. Food/snack/beverage selection at the coach section wasn't much. If taking a longer than 3-hour trip, be prepared. 3-hour scenic route excursion is the best option though, imho. Coffee was barely warm. I wish they'd sell lunch at the coach's.
