Through the years, thousands of persons from all over the world have traveled to Reader, Arkansas to ride the Reader Railroad, also known as The Possum Trot Line. This renowned steam-powered short-line railroad is the last exclusively-steam-powered common carrier standard gage railroad left in North America. This short-line railroad started in 1880 when Lee Reader came to Nevada and Ouachita Counties in Arkansas to erect a sawmill. It's long and rich history continues today as the reader continues its steam only operations.
