Michael Hibblen is news director at KUAR in Little Rock and the author of Rock Island Railroad in Arkansas, a collection of photographs of the crucial railroad that provided passenger and freight services in Arkansas for nearly 80 years. A decline in rail travel after World War II left the railroad struggling, and the Rock Island shut down in 1980. A few relics of the once-great railroad remain, such as the Little Rock passenger station and the Arkansas River bridge. Join Michael Hibblen as he depicts the glory days of railroading in Arkansas.
