Overview

The Arizona & California Railroad (ARZC) is a short line railroad that interchanages with BNSF. The ARZC began operations between 1903 and 1907 by the Arizona & California Railway. By 1910, the line had stretched its reach to Cadiz, California.

The ARZC operates 190 miles of main line track. At Cadiz, the ARZC begins with an interchange with the BNSF and continues southeast across the Mojave Desert to Rice, California, then east to cross the Colorado River Arizona/California state line at Parker, Arizona.
