Antique Milwaukee Road Caboose

A antique Milwaukee Road caboose sits on a siding in Alberton, Montana. The Milwaukee Road line was the shortest line over the continental divide, having been built between 1906 and 1909. Portions of the "Pacific Extension", which included western Montana and the Idaho panhandle, were electrified to reduce the risk of wildfires along the route.
