Kiamichi RR

 Chaparral RR

The Kiamichi Railroad began operations on July 22, 1987, over 227 miles of former Burlington Northern Railroad Company trackage in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas. This mileage had been part of the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway Company prior to its merger with the Burlington Northern. The Kiamichi, named for the Kiamichi River, has two lines, one of which extends from Madill, Oklahoma, to Hope, Arkansas, and the other from Antlers, Oklahoma, to Paris, Texas. The two lines cross at Hugo, Oklahoma, where the line has its headquarters. The sixteen miles in Texas from the Red River to Paris was built in 1888 by the Paris and Great Northern Railroad Company. In 1988 the Kiamichi had fifty-two employees and handled 32,180 carloads over its system. On April 6, 1990, the affiliated Chaparral Railroad began service over sixty-one miles between Paris and Farmersville acquired from the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company. The company also had trackage rights over an additional twenty-five miles between Farmersville and Garland. However, the Chaparral embargoed its line on August 10, 1994, and the Kiamichi began service over the four miles south of Paris.

Third Sunday in Lent

Choose Life.

The fast of Lent has no advantage to us unless it brings about our
spiritual renewal. It is necessary while fasting to change our whole life
and practice virtue. Turning away from all wickedness means keeping our
tongue in check, restraining our anger, avoiding all gossip, lying and
swearing. To abstain from these things

- herein lies the true value of the fast.

- St. John Chrysostom
