This MRL SW1500 works the west end of the top yard in Laurel, switching out some tank cars. It has been awhile since I've seen a genuine switch engine doing work in a yard!

No worries on the mix up, Bob! Very much enjoyed your comment and stories from growing up.

I am an MRL lover, too. My interest started when I lived in Montana. I grew up when the NP still existed. Loved the passenger color scheme that I saw at 8 AM going east out of Butte, and 4 PM going west into Butte. Also saw triple headed articulated locos together east bound between Helena and Bozeman in the 50's. Since then I have been thinking they were heading to be decommissioned, probably at Livingston. MRL 51, if my memory serves me right, used to be and NP loco.  
Everytime I get back to Montana, I love railfanning between Laurel and Bozeman. There is nothing in my mind as impressive as mountain railroading!
