No. That would be very false information. Of which there is far, far too much out there concerning MILW's western extension. As I noted before, passenger service ended May of 1961, west of Deer Lodge. This event, and the last run was well documented and published. Then in 1963, service to Deer Lodge ended as well. It was all diesel out here, by the late 1950's. Tons of evidence exists. Photos, timetables... No later than mid-September of 1960, the E20 and 21 were already reclassified as EF4 and assigned to the freight pool. Office of the Superintendent of Motive Power documentation. The top photo shows one of the converted express cars, to a heater car. The bottom photo shows the early, experimental simplified freight scheme on the second Joe. Note how low the black is, as seen on the nose? At first they painted them that low, to align with the smaller, GP9 units black banding. That did not look good on the Joes, so they raised it to above their number boards. Photographic evidence shows that at least two, if not three were painted that way before they stopped and changed it. My notes on which units are stashed somewhere.
