Ozark Valley Railroad Overview

The Ozark Valley Railroad is a 27-mile shortline railroad connecting Mexico, Missouri, and Fulton, Missouri. The railroad was founded in 2007 to take over KCS operations of the 22 mile line between Mexico and Fulton and the 2.6 mile Arthur Spur to the CTS Cement Plant.

As of 2020, the railroad primarily only switches 2-3 customers on the north end of the line in Mexico and also continues to operate the Arthur Spur. The railroad has trackage rights over the KCS to access the Arthur Spur. The line is out of service completely between Auxvasse and Fulton, and the line between Auxvasse and the Mexico Business Park is used only for car storage.

OVRR interchanges with KCS and NS in Mexico, Missouri.
