New Project: The End of the Line

For more than 125 years, trains have passed through downtown Kalispell, Montana. Sometime in the next year, however, that will come to an unceremonious end with the completion of a new rail park just east of town that will allow for the removal of about 2 miles of railroad. The rails will be replaced with a brand new walking trail that local officials hope will spur development in the heart of Kalispell.

Earlier this year, I embarked on an effort to record the final months of train service through downtown Kalispell. The final product will likely appear in a future issue of Flathead Living Magazine, but until then, here’s a taste of what I’ve seen thus far. Enjoy.

    Mr. Franz.

    i liked you article in the Washington Post about the C&T scenic Railroad.

    Where can I buy the picture of the two trains puffing smoke?
    I would like to add it to my train poster collection.
