Remarks & Notes 
Fourteen locomotives head back to Helena, Montana, as a light engine movement on the afternoon of February 6, 1997. Two 4-unit helper sets, a 2-unit point helper and a set of four BNSF locomotives glint the evening sun at Austin dropping downgrade off Mullan Pass. Looks like an engineer on one of the helper sets forgot to turn off the sanders with all of that sand swirling around!

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
