Montana Rail Link SDP40 No. 290 pulls an eastbound work train on the main line at Woodlin, Montana, heading for the lead into Thompson River Lumber (just east of Thompson Falls) on September 26, 2013. The crew will tie up the train on the spur after a day of work on MRL’s Fourth Subdivision.
The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves reliable by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
