Didn't know that was the name of the operation. Drove through there a few weeks ago and saw the power sitting not far from the road, I believe I was at the Weyerhaeuser Mill at Columbia Falls but the power was parked south of the road crossing. I thought the power was sitting at a Cement plant or maybe a grain mill but I haven't found it on Google Maps. This was new Territory for me, didn't have time to go back and check it out.

+ Maybe just south of 9th st which is apparently hiway 2. Google shows a number of cars and a couple of locomotives sitting there, maybe that's what I saw.

Don't know all the customers that are moving, other than CHS, but here's a good idea of what's going on...

Mission Mountain (MMT) also operates the Eureka, MT to Stryker, MT line. Power is kept in Eureka and operates a few days a week.
