Butte, Anaconda and Pacific Railway Locomotive and Train

The Butte, Anaconda and Pacific was the first electric railway in Montana. While it never quite made it to the Pacific Ocean, this railway was the primary mover of Ore between Butte and the smelter in Anaconda - about 16 miles away. Today, all but a small section of the original railway has been ripped up, with the right of way either being converted to informal roads or, in some places, to bike and walking paths.
