Another effort is being made to get Amtrak to make Bald Knob one of its rail stops, according to state Rep. Craig Christiansen.

Christiansen told the Bald Knob City Council on Monday that for the last 15 to 20 years, officials have been trying to get Amtrak to stop in Bald Knob. “Three times we have gotten close with Amtrak during the last 18 years. Three times we’ve been shot down when people either died, took a transfer or left the company.”
