Here's a few maps from the North Arkansas to let you see she ain't just a pretty face. smile.gif There'll be some pretty intense railroadin' in the supplied activities for it.

The maps presented will represent most of the larger towns. Bear in mind there are several small towns with "onesy-twosy" sidings/spurs along the way through these places. Should be plenty to do for a route modeling a mainline of 33 miles.

We'll start at the west end at the interchange town of Seligman, Missouri....

From Seligman you go through the small town of Pender, Missouri, and next up is Walden, Missouri. Below you will find a map of Walden...

After leaving Walden, you soon wind your way along Poker Bluffs, to the small town of Beaver, Arkansas. Once past Beaver, next switching place will be Gaskins Switch, then Junction. Swinging south at Junction takes you to the operational headquarters of Eureka Springs. (Well, it was the operational headquarters from 1883 until the line built into Harrison, Arkansas about 1902. Once Harrison track was up and going, the North Arkansas moved operational headquarters there and soon built their main shops there as well.)

Below is a map of Eureka!

Returning to Junction from Eureka Springs, swinging east you go upgrade (again) to Tunnel, past Tunnel Switch, through the town of Grandview, cross the Kings River and on to Freeman, Arkansas. Swinging onto the south leg of the wye at Freeman takes you down the 3 mile branch to Berryville, Arkansas.

The last map we'll take a look at is Berryville.

Well, all for now!

"How long have you been working on this route?"

Waaaay too long. smile.gif

This being my first commercial venture, the learning curve in regards to having to do/build everything myself was a bit steeper than expected. Plus, my vocation has to be attended too as top priority, as well as dealing with a terminal illness followed by death in our family several months ago. (That last aspect alone took me away from RE and my routine for about a month.)

That said, I think it's been on my hard drive for about 6-8 months.

However, I intend to finish the "next one" in record time. Well... that's my story and I'm sticking to it. biggrin.gif
