Springdale, AR (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Arkansas and Missouri Railroad began operation in 1986. The A&M has since invested millions of dollars to improve service to customers, enhance public and company safety, and catalyze economic growth in the 150 mile Monett, MO to Fort Smith, AR corridor. Most rail historians recognize the A&M’s tracks as part of the old St. Louis-San Francisco (Frisco) Railway system built in the 1880’s.
A&M provides freight service to customers along its route and passenger excursions between Springdale and Van Buren/Fort Smith. A&M will be hosting a variety of special events all year. Passengers will ride in comfort in one of the vintage coach cars and enjoy the scenic hills and valleys of northwest Arkansas and the Boston Mountains.
A listing of special excursions and pricing can be found on the A&M website. They will be updating the site regularly for passengers who wish to check the calendar and make reservations. Passengers can also find information about attractions along the excursion routes. Explore http://www.amrailroad.com/ to plan a tour.
