Fascinating article from the Flathead Beacon... "This year is the 125th anniversary of “Empire Builder” James J. Hill completing his Great Northern Railway, which changed the Flathead Valley and the Pacific Northwest forever"

That's a great article and I have always enjoyed reading about the GNR. I am especially fond of its logo.
