Five Apache Railway Alco/MLW Centuries head light back to Snowflake, Arizona after taking a 38-car train north to the BNSF connection at Holbrook on June 14, 2000. The Apache Railway was incorporated in 1917, when it began construction of a rail line from Holbrook south, reaching Snowflake in 1918. The main purpose of constructing the line was to haul products from a paper mill in Snowflake to Holbrook. The Snowflake paper mill shut down permanently on September 30, 2012. In late 2015, the railway was purchased out of bankruptcy by a group, thereby avoiding a shutdown and scrappage of the line. The railway continues to operate, and its revenues are driven primarily by car repair and storage.
