View Full Version : Pinsly buys two Arkansas shortlines

A couple of old names in the Arkansas shortline world are getting new ownership. I wouldn't be surprised if the Warren & Saline River just completely disappears and is operated as part of the Arkansas Midland. I'd also say it's doubtful they'll keep the Prescott & Northwestern's 70 Tonners active, as well.

Pinsly to acquire two Arkansas short lines
The Surface Transportation Board recently granted Pinsly Railroad Co. an exemption to acquire Warren & Saline River Railroad Co. (WSR) by purchasing the short line’s stock from Potlatch Land & Lumber L.L.C. Pinsly also plans to acquire the Prescott and Northwestern Railroad Co. (PNW) from Potlatch Land via a stock purchase.
