Great Northern at Great Falls

Arriving in Great Falls as the sun was setting last night only allowed a brief window to get some photos of the last presence of the old Great Northern Railway. Now owned by Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF), the Great Northern was once the main rail service across much of northern Montana. Fortunately BNSF hasn’t rebranded everything, so in some cases things look a little like they used to be.
