      Boxcab: Yes they use all five on the Butte-Garrison run.

      Hemi: I wish I could shoot more but, i'm leaving for Alaska tomorrow and won't be back untill next week. By then they may be gone.

      Sounds like they have a fair amount of traffic? Incoming? Outbound? Who is shipping these days?

      :D

      Well in town its just the fuel dealer (inbound) and occacially a lumber yard (inbound) in the industrial park. The rest is interchange traffic from the UP to the MRL and MRL to UP. Also more interchange traffic from the Rarus Railway too, its mostly outbound loads from the copper mine here in town. Also the lumber mill (outbound) in Deer Lodge, MT ships mostly south via the UP interchange. Also a lot of stuff is inbound and outbound from the Port of Montana in Silver Bow, MT. They usally have too double up or more before they leave the yard to head for Garrison, MT.

      Sounds like they're doing better with business than MWRR. Have they done any track work?

      :D
