FORDYCE & PRINCETON RAILROAD Crossett Arkansas

The Fordyce and Princeton Railroad Company (reporting mark FP) 
is a short-line railroad headquartered in Crossett, Arkansas.
F&P operates 57 miles (92 km) of line from Fordyce, Arkansas (where it interchanges with Union Pacific), to an interchange with Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi Railroad at Crossett.

F&P traffic generally consists of lumber and paper products.

F&P incorporated on February 25, 1890 as a 9.4-mile (15.1 km)
 line between Fordyce and Toan, Arkansas. 
The railroad expanded, then downsized to a mere 1.14 miles (1.83 km) of switching track near Fordyce. 

After the liquidation of Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, F&P acquired the line between Fordyce and Crossett, via Banks, Craney, Hermitage, Ingalls, Vick, Broad, Emery, and Whitlow.

F&P was owned by Georgia Pacific from 1963 until March 2004, 
when it was sold to Genesee and Wyoming.
