Remarks & Notes 
Butte MT is the end of the line for the beautiful Homestake Pass. The line was used by the Northern Pacific for passenger service mostly because of its superb scenery. The right of way and the tracks are still there, but it is very questionable whether it will ever see service again. As Wikipedia says: "This was Northern Pacific's scenic transcontinental passenger train route used by the famous North Coast Limited"
