THE MILWAUKEE ROAD IN MONTANA: THE LAST DAYS OF THE ELECTRICS

DVD: $25.95 USD

Today, it's a fallen flag railroad, but it was once one of the most unique rail lines in the United States. The Milwaukee Road, which ran from Chicago to the Pacific Northwest, operated as an electrified line in Montana up until June of 1974. Photographer Ted Pope captured the last 4 days of the electric operations before the line switched to full diesel operations. The territory you will see in this video runs between Deer Lodge and Harlowton, Montana. Several scenes feature in-cab footage in the Little Joes as the trains travel through Sixteen Mile Canyon and the scenic Jefferson Canyon. They're places so remote, you can only see them by rail! Get ready to enjoy historic footage of these magnificent electric locomotives pulling heavy freight across the beautiful Montana Mountain landscape! List price $29.95, 72 minutes, color/silent films with music and narration. SKU: MRMTDVD. Posted 2-18-11.
