Bruce Black labeled this shot as @ Logan, MT on Sept. 4, 1973. That's MILW SW1 #869 with a very short train on a model RR bridge.

More correctly, the Menard Branch via Bozeman.

Here is what the Google Car captured for the After image.

I think my dad and I exited here to go to Trident six years ago but I took no picture in fact at that point I didn't realize the branchline was still running along I-90.

Another great post of Milwaukee in Montana.

The grain car may be headed to Menard, maybe Belgrade. The rear insulated UP plug door boxcar is perhaps coming from Olympia, WA with a way bill clearly stating the contents included "beer, 102 tons, kegs, bottles, cans." Perfect for a college town. The same cars
Were set out in Missoula.
