"Midnight Train"

Under a midnight Milky Way, the headlight beam from a westbound freight train paints the foothills framing Mount St. Nicholas, along the southern edge of Glacier National Park. When the old Great Northern Railway began building this northern-most route over the Rocky Mountains, in August of 1890 at Marias Pass, it set into motion a relationship between the railroad and the park that continues today.
