    Default MRL April 2017

    Got to go to the Livingston Helena Railfair weekend this year, and there was a lot of action! Friday afternoon found a snowstorm up on the Pass, which I am sure made for some interesting railroading! Here's a couple of pics and one of many videos fro yesterday and today.

    And here is the early morning chase up Mullan pass as far as Marent trestle. Saw an elk herd, and got it going around Austin curvr then 30 minutes later it hit the trestle! It is an awesome thing to be under as she rolled over!!

    You must have wanted to miss the earthquake that would have woken you up if you'd spent last night in Helena!

    We could feel it (a very gentle rocking at bedtime) clear up here in the northwest corner of the state, but there were pictures on the news this morning of canned food dumped into the aisles of Helena grocery stores. Wonder if there were a few rocks shaken loose from the lining of the tunnel too.

    I'd bet that MRL had inspectors in all the tunnels, on the bridges and along every cut where rock may have fallen! Now that would be a "fun" day to be a track inspector.
