Re: Central Division I thought perhaps a map might make this thread more interesting to those unfamiliar with the Sebastian County, AR area. This is a poor copy of an obsolete USGS map with data from about 1948. Black and white copies of “historical maps” can be obtained from them by special order. Much better, more detailed maps of this area are available, but are too large to post for this purpose. A - Bonanza, AR (Frisco MP 428.1). The dashed line just below Bonanza is the road bed of the “industrial track” ( Mo & La R.R.?) that I am interested in. The tracks were already gone at this time, but are shown on maps from 1903 to as late as 1935. The last major underground mine with a “Frisco connection” was Reinhard-Barr #135 which was located about 2 ½ miles east of Bonanza and still in operation in 1929. Strip mines operated after that date. A Sebastian County (AR) historical journal includes this statement in an article about Bonanza by an elderly resident who was well acquainted with the coal business there “Central Coal kept their steam engine and caboose at a roundhouse west of highway 45, south of Woodson Ave. They used it to haul coal to Poteau (OK) for KSC and to make trips to Doubleday slack washer.” B - A short spur of this branch once led to Central Coal No. Mine No. 26 which operated until 1919.. C - The longest branch of this track led east toward Jenny Lind, Arkansas and may have reached about 3 ½ miles in length? D - Frisco’s Backbone Tunnel. E - Jenson Junction, (Frisco MP 431.1) F - Maney Junction (Frisco MP 433.3) G - The 1st (of two) Frisco/Midland Valley crossing on the Mansfield Branch. H - The area between Frisco and MV is a loading tipple which a number of mines on the Midland Valley (mostly further east off this map toward Greenwood) were sharing at this time in an interesting arrangement where coal was trucked from different mines and loaded on Frisco for shipment to St. Louis. Doubleday, AR (Mansfield Branch, MP 433.1, the site of the coal washer mentioned above) is off this map to the south and east. Central Coal’s Mansfield Branch mines were further on down the branch. Fort Smith is off the map to the north of Bonanza. Highway 10 west from Hackett to Oklahoma line was a Frisco coal spur (Branner Mansfield Branch MP 431.5) in the early 1900's. One final note: coal mine/railroad arrangements were used by almost ALL railroads in the early coal days. For example, the Iron Mountain/Mo Pac used Western Coal & Mining Company in Kansas and Arkansas for one of their primary coal sources in exactly the same way that Frisco used K & T Coal. Somebody HELP! I thought I sent a map with this!! I don't know where it went but I'm not seeing it.
