Arkans - Arkansas Railroad Museum
Pine Bluff, AR - In 1955, the Cotton Belt Railroad donated Steam Locomotive 819 to the City of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The 819 was the last steam engine built in the Cotton Belt Shops (the same building that now houses the Arkansas Railroad Museum). A group of volunteers, mainly railroad employees, moved the locomotive to Oakland Park where it sat on display for some 25 years.

As time progressed and the restoration effort was underway, many people became interested in the project. This brought many people to the building and many began to bring items to donate to the Cotton Belt Historical Society. It became obvious that the project was going to grow into more than a restored steam engine. The name Arkansas Railroad Museum was adopted and the museum is still operated by the Cotton Belt Rail Historical Society, Inc. The building has over 70,000 square feet of floor space, 17 tracks, houses two display rooms and many displays.

Arkansas - Arkansas Missouri Railroad
Springdale, AR - Arkansas and Missouri Railroad's special passenger train services offer you 'A Window Seat to History' -- an opportunity to travel in the style of a bygone era. You can still enjoy the leisurely elegance of real train travel through the mountains and valleys of Northwest Arkansas.

Over trestles with views for miles and through a quarter mile tunnel, your journey will take you all the way to the top of the scenic Boston Mountains and into the historic Arkansas River Basin.

The Arkansas and Missouri Railroad is one of the few commercial lines left in the United States that operates both freight and passenger service. All of our passengers travel the regular working rails in refurbished antique passenger or parlor coaches.

For some, the journey evokes memories of an era long gone. For others, it is the fulfillment of a wish to let their children and grandchildren experience the Golden Age of Travel just as they did when they were young. All enjoy a uniquely memorable experience reminiscent of American traditions in transportation.

Arkansas - Central Delta Depot Museum
Brinkley, AR - The Central Delta Depot Museum in Brinkley (Monroe County) is an initiative of the Central Delta Historical Society, which was organized in the 1990s to preserve the history and heritage of the central Delta area. The museumís scope covers all of Monroe and parts of Woodruff, St. Francis, Prairie, Lee, Phillips, and Arkansas counties.

In February 2001, Union Pacific deeded the station to the city of Brinkley, which later gave a long-term lease for it to the Central Delta Historical Society. The groundbreaking ceremony for the restoration of the depot was held May 4, 2001. Welch Construction Company of Benton (Saline County) had the general contract, and work was completed in 2003. The museum opened in May of that year.

The Central Delta Depot Museum is a museum of general history, with an emphasis on the stories of the Rock Island and Cotton Belt rail lines that crossed at Brinkley. The museum gets some support from the city of Brinkley but otherwise depends on admission charges, donations, fundraisers, and grants to finance its operation.

On the museum grounds is the approximately 100-year-old frame depot that at one time was located at Monroe (Monroe County) on the Missouri Pacific rail line that connected Brinkley to Helena (Phillips County). Still another rail line, the White and Black River Railroad (owned in later years by Rock Island), provided service from Brinkley to Jacksonport (Jackson County).

Arkansas - Mammoth Spring Frisco Depot Museum
Mammoth Spring AR - Mammoth Spring, Arkansas's largest spring, flows nine million gallons of water hourly. Forming a scenic 10-acre lake, it then flows south as the Spring River, a popular trout and float stream.
