Northern Pacific [Montana Rail Link]
Montana (Clark Fork River)
September 6, 1999
As late as 1999 semaphores could still be found on the former Northern Pacific (by now part of Montana Rail Link). This one was on the "low-grade" freight line between De Smet and Paradise, Montana which ran along the Clark Fork River; the location is roughly at the Sanders County line and seen from Montana Highway 135.
