ALL ABOARD THE 3.10 TO YUMA!

There is a 3.10 to Yuma train!

It will cost you $187 and you will need to board the Amtrak Texas Eagle at Little Rock,Arkansas in the middle of the night and be prepared to travel 1843 miles and be on the train for 45 hours to reach Yuma!

Van Heflin wanted to catch that train ( from Contention City) to take Glenn Ford to the Yuma Territorial Prison. This prison was active from 1876 to 1909 and is now a state park.

Contention City in Arizona sprang  up in the 1880s but rapidly became a ghost town.
