Sand Springs Railway - Sand Springs, Oklahoma

The Sand Springs Railway is based in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, a western suburb of Tulsa. The railroad operates approximately 8 miles of track from Sand Springs east to Tulsa. The line's owner and primary customer is Sheffield Steel.

The Sand Springs is a former interurban passenger line; traces of its heritage as an interurban can still be seen along some of its trackage, especially the old poles which line the tracks along Charles Page Blvd. between Tulsa and Sand Springs.

Sand Springs' locomotive roster consists of three SW900 locomotives, #s 100, 101, and 102.
