Remarks & Notes 
The four SD-40-2s leading Milwaukee's eastbound freight come into view at the loop at Cedric, Montana as the caboose of the 120-some-odd car train sweeps by the camera in August 1973. Box cab electric helpers were cut-in mid-train to assist with the 1.6% grade out of Butte and this 2.0% decline.

Have you ever watched cabooses, enjoyed their uniqueness, wondered about the men inside, or the jobs they do? Once an everyday sight on the rails, they have decreased in numbers, yet they are a very important part of railroad history.
