Freeman-Smith Lumber Company bought this little Ten-wheeler for its Arkansas operation, which included a 28-mile main line from Millville, where it linked to the Cotton Belt, southeast to Stark, where it met the Rock Island. The ICC's Tap Line Case summary notes that only 430 tons of freight in 1912 were not directly connected to the lumber company's logging operations. Morover, the train rode on 30-lb (15-kg/metre) rail.
The Arkansas Tap Line summary notes that the ICC nevertheless pronounced the OVRwy a common carrier and noted critically that the rate charged to the Rock Island was substantially more favorable than the one made available to the Cotton Belt.
The OV Rwy responded to the decision by restructuring itself as an industrial road.
The Ouachita Valley's parent would later sell the 5 to the Ogemaw Lumber Company in Arkansas in 1920. OLC operated the 5 until at least 1934.
