"THIRD SUB CLUB"

MULLAN PASS Railfan PHOTO SECTION 3.
An eastbound decends the upper horse-shoe curve coming out of the Iron Ridge area. Grain trains make up a staple of the Mullan Pass traffic. This empty will be in Helena for a crew change within 40 minutes. 1997.
The same train, in an away shot, rounds the curve and begins the decent of the middle tier of the three tracks rising through the Austin area. 1997.
The Garrison turn, led by an F45, is seen roaring upgrade, out of the tunnel cut at Iron Ridge. The single-track tunnel is still in the hillside to the left of the train, but has several cave-ins to its roof. The bypass cut is very deep and the tracks make an s-curve as they pass through it. The cut is at the top end of the huge horse-shoe curve that turns the tracks back westerly, after the climb up from Austin. 1995.
On another day, two F45s and an SD45 are at the helm of the LM (Laurel to Missoula merchandise) mixed freight, as the round the Austin horse-shoe and begin the toughest part of the Mullan east slope. The Austin curve does not quite make a 180 degree turn, but it is close. 1998.
