History

The Bauxite and Northern Railway was incorporated in Arkansas on November 13 1906, for the purpose of constructing and operating a railroad from the town of Bauxite Saline County to a junction with the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railway. The BXN connected with the Rock Island at Bauxite, and connected with the Missouri Pacific at BN Junction. For the railroad's first 100 years, it was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Aluminum Company of America.

The connection for the old Rock Island is now gone, but the remnants are still visible, including a bridge over the Rock Island roadbed and local highway.

Current motive power are two EMD MP15DC locomotives, housed in a two-stall enginehouse just outside the Alcoa plant. Former power was an ALCO RS-3 diesel.
