Roark Creek Rail Bridge in Taney County Missouri
Posted April 17, 2019, by Charles Petit (mountaincreekar [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Roark Creek Rail Bridge in Taney County Missouri

The railroad's name is not correct in BridgeHunter.com


The railroad's name is Missouri & Northern Arkansas MNA

is an operating Class II railroad passing through Taney County Missouri

Incorrect: Missouri & North Arkansas M&NA is a ghost railroad that 99.8% formerly operated in Arkansas and was not in Taney County Missouri

The railroads' Reporting Marks are not the same as the railroads' written names. They are backwards.

This confuses even in many web searches.

Missouri & North Arkansas M&NA operated & closed down prior to the start of the Missouri & Northern Arkansas MNA. Missouri & North Arkansas M&NA those that Reporting Mark that had the "& sign" in it.

The Missouri & Northern Arkansas MNA was not allowed to use M&NA for their Reporting Mark.
