Montana Rails - Mountains to Prairies

This 96-page full-color 6” x 9” soft cover book contains over 200 color
photographs, capturing images of trains from all corners of the State of Montana.

For nearly 150-years railroads have been transforming the Montana
landscape from the
Continental Divide peaks to wind swept prairies.
Steel rails arrived May 9, 1880 when the narrow-gauge Utah & Northern
reached Monida Pass south of Butte.
At the zenith of rail line construction during the 1890s and early 20th Century,
 all major transcontinental railroads crisscrossed Montana; the Union Pacific,
Northern Pacific, Chicago, Burlington & Quincy [CB&Q], Great Northern,
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul [Milwaukee Road] and the Soo Line.Through the years,
many original railroads evolved into the Burlington Northern Railroad,
Burlington Northern Santa Fe [BNSF] and Montana Rail Link with unique shortlines
along the way. Though routes and operations have changed, the scenery
 of the Big Sky State remain the same.

Take a journey across Montana rails, from the mountains to the prairies.
