Who We Are

The Angelina & Neches River Railroad (A&NR) began in 1900 as a small shortline railroad to move logs from the woods of East Texas to the mills of the Angelina County Lumber Company. Principal founding partners: Joseph H. Kurth, S.W. Henderson, Eli Wiener and Sam Wiener joined the growing trend of lumber company industrialists who branched out into the railroad business about the turn of the 20th century. Since that time, A&NR Railroad has played a key role in the economic development of Lufkin and helped shape the success of Lufkin’s largest corporations.
