    Nope, just the leaders.
    Took 4 hours last night to upload this coal train from yesterday, I also have a video of the helpers knuckling in and of the headend power tying back on after picking up the extra MRL units. 5 MRL units added, 9 units in all!

    And today we headed for Butte, via Logan, Three Forks and Pipestone Pass. Had a happy accident in Three Forks, discovered a depot and RR museum! Nicely done.


    And in Butte,

    Actually that is Three Forks. The NP Trident depot was acquired and moved there.

    Did you also see the MILW depot? Last I knew it was a restaurant of some sort. And the hotel?

    Saw the one depot, now called Front Street Station, which is set up as an event center. Saw a few other things, more today and pics to put up later.

    It's a Chinese restaurant, same side of the street, a block further down the main drag. Painted white, with iron railings across the street side.

    At the show in Helena, the only video I took was of the Bozeman Ntrak setup. They bring different modules every year, so that makes it interesting. I got two videos of a Big Boy and an MRL lashup, enjoy!




    Overall a great show! And I was able to only buy a couple of things, and did a swap for some N diesels to sell off, which should be fun. Here's the stuff I got for the NP&BH,
    A few reefers, the "Burp-oh" is hilarious,

    And from MRLDave, with a bit of horse trading,

    All in all a good time! I did catch up with some more MRL, probably the last time I will get to see a lot of them in action.

    Wow. That Burp-Oh Beer reefer goes way back! I had one. Sometimes wish I had kept it, just for laughs.

    Thanks for posting the videos.......I took nothing. Mind if I pirate them for the club site? And the boxcars were all different numbers from what I have.......what are the odds of that!

    Boxcab - The laughs is why I picked it up, it is funny!!

    Dave - Yup, link them over. Also, someone noted that it is a Challenger pulling the coal, not a Big Boy! So, I changed the title a bit.

    The boxcars being different numbers is great! Happy accidents!
