Montana Railroad - Clarksville Arkansas


The Montana Railroad was a shortline existing in Johnson County Arkansas, built to connect a number of coal mines with the Missouri Pacific Central Division.

Can anyone provide any roster information for this line?  It is known to have had Shay c/n 1759 and also Baldwin 2-6-2  c/n 53164 at various times in its history, but specific dates of operation are unknown.

The negative lists of the Wm Monypeny collection show a Montana RR #4, 2-6-2, photographed at Clarksville AR in 1937.  Does anyone have a print from this negative?
