ABOUT

The Arkansas Southern Railroad (ARS) began operations on October 9, 2005. Watco Transportation Services, Inc. (WTS) acquired the railroad from the KCS through a lease agreement. Nestled among the pines of western Arkansas, the ARS consists of 63 miles of track on two branches. The 32-mile northern branch runs east from Heavener, Oklahoma to Waldron, Arkansas. The southern branch runs northeast from Ashdown, Arkansas, to Nashville, Arkansas. The ARS interchanges with the KCS at Ashdown and Heavener. ARS handles commodities such as corn and soy, carbon dioxide, chemicals such as bauxite and acid, as well as storage cars.
