Northern Pacific [Montana Rail Link]
Missoula, Montana
September 6, 1999

Although regularly scheduled passenger trains are long gone from the Northern Pacific main through Montana, special "land cruise" trains still continue to operate from time to time. Here the Montana Daylight heads east out of Missoula on its run between Sand Point, Idaho and Livingston, Montana; this train made its last run in 2004. The former NP Missoula depot is just behind the photographer.
