Electric trains come to MT. In 1915! Check out the video!

The building we’re working on turning into our business and home is an electric train substation built around 1915.  We’ve already learned so much about the MILW and our building, but I’ll wait until our historian finishes our National Historic Register application and post it here to make sure all the facts are 100% correct.  This video features one of the electric train substations in Montana, not ours but the station east of Butte, which is unfortunately gone now.  We’ve ended up with one of the last ones, so we’re committed to getting it registered and rehabbing the outside of the building.  How cool is it that Montana, Idaho, and Washington were all connected by an electric train line so long ago?
