- The Arkansas Association of Railroad Passengers -
WELCOMEArkansas Rail was formed in 1978 as the Arkansas Association of Railroad Passengers, for the purpose of developing political support to preserve rail passenger service in Arkansas and northeast Texas. Our primary mission is to develop grass-roots support for the concept that Amtrak is a necessary part of this region's transportation network. The organization also functions in a consumer advocacy role to promote improvements in the quality and quantity of Amtrak service. In recognition of increased involvement with rail freight issues (shortline development, rail banking, and rail mergers), the name was changed to Arkansas Rail in 1995. Arkansas Rail is not affiliated with Amtrak, any railroad, rail union, or other rail advocacy group.

Arkansas Rail also wishes to acknowledge the extensive assistance provided by Sherman Frost, creator of the All Aboard-USA web site.

Without the guidance and expertise offered by Sherm Frost, the Internet presence of Arkansas Rail and numerous other rail advocacy groups would have been much delayed.
