Here is another railroad based picture that was in our local newspaper today.



I found this one to be particularly interesting for a few reasons. The Crow Indians are using teams of horses and a Fresno to move dirt, modern equipment back in the day. The horse in the foreground doesn't look so good as it's ribs are really showing. I like the caption as it mentions the Burlington and Missouri Railroad, Yellowstone National Park, the Tongue River tie flume and the Big Horn Mountains (I live at the base of them). Hardin, Montana isn't too far from where I live. Anyway I wanted to share another photograph.

Thanks,
Randy
