I had been cruising around your site when it dawned on me that you had not updated the Montana page to reflect the semaphores that MRL removed this past October 2000. Below are the ones retired between Thompson Falls and Childs, MT.


Sorry for not letting you guys know sooner. The signal project for this year will retire the ones between Eddy and Woodlin, MT later this summer 2001.
