Welcome to the Railroads of Montana
Railroads of Montana as been active since the year 2000 highlighting the railroad photography from the State of Montana and Dale Jones. Early calendars featured the Railroads of Montana, beginning way back with an 18-month 1999/2000 small format calendar. In addition to the Railroads of Montana calendars,
there were a series
[now long out of print] of full-color 28-page booklets covering topics as the 
Soo Line connection in Montana
[which by-the-way can be viewed HERE at my Soo Line history page,]
 a pictorial history of Marias Pass and the Hi-Line from Browning to Bainville

The Railroads of Montana calendars from 2011 through 2014 are formatted in Adobe® Reader PDF files
and are
FREE for anyone who would like to download them. There are hundreds of
important dates in Montana railway along with interesting transportation logos and insignias  -
as well as beautiful color photographs from all around the Big Sky State.
You may now print these calendars out on your own printer.

I've added a bibliography of books related to Montana transportation history, as I get many requests on
where to find research concerning various railroads. I am also working on an ongoing
historical list of railroad employees that worked in Montana, as I get many genealogical questions.

PLEASE CLICK HERE IF YOU ARE RESEARCHING GENEALOGICAL QUESTIONS
Hopefully this list will help - check out these new web pages for additional information.
I've also designed a custom search engine specifically to search Montana history websites
