Bibliography of Montana Railroad Publications 

Here is a bibliography of books related to Montana transportation history,

As with any list - this is in no way the "complete" comprehensive bibliography of all 
publications that were ever written about Montana railroad/transportation history

Most of these publications I have researched personally, but I don't have a synopsis for each publication, nor do I have the resources to examine any book for your particular subject.
It may also be noted that in any given publication - there may be an abundance of
information you may find valuable...or there be little or any relevant to your subject.
Look at it as a Treasure Hunt!

This bibliography is presented as a stepping stone to assist you in perhaps finding a starting place for your own research. Most libraries have online search engines that can be used to locate publications once you know what you are looking for - many libraries allow Interlibrary loans.
You may also be able to pick up a particular publication by checking through Amazon or Ebay.

This bibliography is roughly organized by railroad - again...
some books are more general than others

Many books will have information on more than one railroad or subject that will assist you in what you are looking for - I've found when doing research....sit back and enjoy the ride!
