The last diesel locomotive rolled off the Alco assembly line in 1969 but the hills of northwest Arkansas still echoed those distinctive Alco sounds in 1988, on the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad. Running along a 139-mile corridor from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Monett, Missouri, the A&M is a longtime favorite of railfans as its fleet is comprised entirely of Alco locomotives. Here’s your opportunity to see Century 420s climbing the steep slopes of the Boston Mountains, the highest mountain grade between the Appalachians and the Rockies.

You’ll thrill to those unmistakable throaty sounds of an Alco throttle yanked into “Run Eight.” You’ll also ride in the cab of a smoking T-6 as it switches cars on a branch line and visit the shops in Springdale where the locomotives are serviced and kept running strong. A highlight of your adventures is a ride aboard RS-1 #22 as it pulls a passenger train just for us. This entertaining tour of the Arkansas & Missouri is a “must-have” addition to your railroad DVD collection!

    If you’re a fan of Alco locomotives and REAL railroading, then this video is for you. Lots of beautiful scenery and the railroad has a lot of hospitality. Very friendly. unique motive power roster. lots of in cab footage also. Glad to see these beautiful units back when this tape was filed and most are still operating to this day! Greta video, well worth the buy!
