Arkansas & Missouri Railroad

New Position Opens

Engineer articleThe A&M is searching for a Chief Engineer to add to the Maintenance of Way Department.  Although it's relatively unusual for a Class III railroad, such as the A&M, to employ its own engineer, the A&M is no ordinary short line!  Interchanging with three Class I railroads, and maintaining not only the river bridge in Van Buren, but also several bridges, culverts and 150 miles of track is no small feat.  "With several track projects planned for the upcoming year, this is the right move for the A&M.  We will benefit greatly from having our own on-staff engineer as we work our way through this year's budgeted repairs and improvements," says President, Brent McCready.  Once hired, the new Chief Engineer will play an integral part in the planning and oversight of the 2015 Track Program.
