Remarks & Notes 
Spent diesel fuel fills the calm Montana mountain air on a chilly Fall morning, while the sound of three EMD 645's drowns out the peaceful rushing waters of the Clark Fork River. The lead locomotive, MRL 261, was added at Livingston the night prior due to the original lead SD45 tripping a ground relay and shutting down. Regardless if the leader has 20 cylinders and flared radiators, you just cannot beat the blue veteran EMD's filling the frame with an incredible mountain scene!
