HUGO HERITAGE RAILROAD


HUGO HERITAGE RAILROAD IS NO LONGER IN OPERATION!!

The Hugo Heritage Raiload (HHR) was formed in 1989 by the Choctaw County Historical Society (Frisco Depot Museum) with the cooperation of the Kiamichi Railroad. It operated under the name of Cimmaron Valley Scenic Railway at first but was quickly changed to HHR when two Norfolk & Western passenger car prior to restoration old Norfolk and Western passenger cars were purchased and reburbished. These were repainted to Kiamichi Railroad colors with Circus embellishments to the sides and were renumbered to cars 1001 & 1002 (see picture above).

Restored passender car - Hugo Heritage Railroad Car No. 1002 Powered by a Kiamichi Railroad diesel engine, this two car operation begain tourist passenger service over Kiamichi Railroad tracks (Antlers, OK, to Paris, TX and Durant, OK, to Hope, AR) as time permitted between regular rail traffic. The majority of these trips were either Hugo to Antlers or Hugo to Paris since this trackage had the least commercial use, but occasional longer excursions were made to Durant or to Valliant or Idabel.

The HHR continued these operations until 2002 when Kiamichi Railroad was purchased by a larger operation which was, in turn, also purchased by an even larger organization. At this point the HRR was denied access to the rails and the operation had to be discontinued.

The restored passenger cars are currently in the possession of, and on display at, the Antlers, Oklahoma, Depot Museum.
