Amtrak's Empire Builder In Pictures
Photos Taken Along The Route

One of many farms in Southern Wisconsin.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, home of Shotz Brewery (Remember the TV Series
"Laverne & Shirley" in the 80's?) Also see the movie "Wayne's World" where
they visit Alice Cooper performing a show there and get backstage passes.
They also ripped off Laverne & Shirley when they visited the infamous brewery!
This photo was taken during the first of many smoking breaks on the train.

Minot, North Dakota, this photo was taken during our station and service stop there.

Somewhere in Western North Dakota, Big Sky Country!!!

Williston, North Dakota. Taken at our station stop and another smoking break!

Great Northern 2-8-2 Mikado #3059 on display near the station.

2 BNSF Switchers, an SW1200 #3519 & SW10 #3648 sit in the yard near Havre, MT.

Great Northern #2584, a Class S-2 4-8-4 Northern on display next to the station

huge sign explaining this steamer located on the tender.

Havre, MT, station stop and quick smoking break as we were running late.

I saw this sign on the station building in Shelby, MT. Very nicely done!

Shelby, MT, the start of the Marias Pass Route on Microsoft Train Simulator,
the real thing looks very similar to the popular computer game!

An interesting looking trailer park just West of Shelby!

One of hundreds of wheat fields along the route, somewhere North of here is Canada!
