Harrison Flowering by Tom Danneman

Montana Rail Link’s 844 local led by two GP35s rolls across an old wooden trestle and past a patch of Silvery Lupine flowers. The local is heading up the 6th Subdivision Harrison Branch to serve Harrison Grain Elevator. The lead GP35 no. 403 is former Rio Grande no. 3039

Happy Independence Day!

The Rock Island Line painted EMD E8 #652 in this Bicentennial paint scheme. This photo at La Salle Street Station is from August 1977 - note the old-style open-window commuter cars with no air conditioning!
