Helena Gets A Big Wet Kiss - Or, The Frozen Pineapple Express

Snow here in Helena is usually of the very dry powder type. Walking on top of it on a cold night, it loudly squeaks in protest as every ice crystal rubs against its neighbor. Yesterday, we got a big wet flake kind of storm, the result of a wet Pacific air mass colliding with colder air.

That house with a view.

The house tracks. Lewis and Clark Brewing opened its Railroad Stage earlier this year.

The stone building is still used by Capital Moving and Storage.

Coal empties cross National Ave.

No DPU on this train, all the power is up front.

6638 W. waits for a crew and helper. The new 3900 has been in service long enough now for its silver trucks to have turned gray.
