Kiamichi Railroad

Oklahoma shortline

The Kiamichi Railroad came into existence in 1987 when local interests purchased from the Burlington Northern (former Frisco) a 186-mile east-west line across southeastern Oklahoma. The line stretches from Hope, Arkansas (with UP and KCS connections) to Lakeside, Oklahoma, with branches to Antlers and Paris. In 1995 the road was sold to the States Rail shortline system, who has subsequently sold the KRR to RailAmerica. Shops are in in Hugo, Oklahoma, and today the KRR interchanges with the BNSF, the Union Pacific, the Kansas City Southern, and the shortline Texas, Oklahoma & Eastern.
