Written by J Randall Houp

This is a very scenic railroad that has everything for a bridgehunter; tall all metal trestles, pass-through swinging bridges, several tunnels, and fantasic scenery. Railroad is well maintained and passes through several tourist towns of note. Railroad bridge located about 2 miles south of Snow, Arkansas.
