Hot Off the Charged Coupled Device

Westbound Grainer, Helena Jct.

Monday February 26, 2018 about 2:00pm. Due to the weather, my first trip out to Helena Jct. this year. This area of Montana currently has a snowpack 160% of normal, so hopefully this next fire season will be nowhere near as bad as 2017's. (link.)

MRL did have a weather related derailment this week when a WB up by Mullan Pass Tunnel had a dynamiter and put 5 cars on the ground. I think its pretty remarkable how few accidents there are in Winter up on the pass.

Pure Fun
