NRHS Arkanas-Boston Mountains Chapter

Arkansas-Boston Mountains

About Our Chapter

The Chapter is actively involved in community events by providing children and adults the opportunity to operate model railroad trains. The Children’s Christmas Train, co-sponsored by Chapter member Arkansas & Missouri Railroad and J.B. Hunt Transport, annually generates tens of thousands of dollars for child welfare causes in Northwest Arkansas. The Chapter mounts a large display of model railroad and rail history at the annual Bentonville, Arkansas Train show. The Chapter also participates in the Frisco Festival held annually at Rogers, Arkansas. In recent years the Christmas banquet has been held on a parlor car of the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad. In June 2011 the Chapter sponsored a Rare Mileage Mix Train weekend attended by railfans from ten states.

Note: the Chapter currently meets at the J. Reilly McCarren Transportation Museum on 306 East Emma, Springdale, AR 72764.
