|Prior to 1974,
the Milwaukee Road had an electrified rail line that passed through
Deer Lodge. The train engine seen here is a E-70, Class
EF-4, 3000 horsepower electric locomotive. This was the primary
locomotive used on this portion of the Milwaukee Road rail line.
These locomotives were very efficient and excellent freight movers
in mountainous area.
