Remarks & Notes 
In the very last sunlight of June 28, 2016, an eastbound BNSF grain train passes by on the main line while Montana Rail Link’s Helena local prepares to pick up a BNSF SD70ACe off the house track at Lombard, Montana. Two days before, BNSF No. 9105 was a rear DPU on an eastbound grain train passing through Lombard Canyon when it developed a traction motor problem and flat-spotted a wheel set. It was set out at Lombard where local mechanical personnel worked as best as they could to grind out the flat spot. The locomotive is now being moved by the local to Toston, which has better road access, so more work can be performed. MRL No. 382 is the last SD45 operating on the railroad, and has only two more trips on the local before possible retirement.
