Arkansas & Missouri’s Monett Turn heads north on the former St. Louis-San Francisco Railway a few miles north of Springdale, Arkansas on June 13, 2014. This train originated in Springdale and is en route to Monett, Missouri to drop off and pick up cars at the BNSF interchange. This route was once a secondary Frisco line, providing service from Monett to Paris, Texas. This line was leased to the A&M in 1986 by the Burlington Northern and then was purchased from BNSF in 2001. Leading the 81-car train are two EMD SD70Aces which the A&M acquired in 2014, Nos. 70 and 71.
