Harlowton, Montana

In 1900, the Montana Railroad built a station stop here and named it after the Montana Railroad's president: Richard A. Harlow. Then the Montana Railroad was bought by the Milwaukee Road. The Milwaukee Road ran a section of "electric operations" with Avery, Idaho at the western end and Harlowton, Montana at the eastern end. Nearly every train that ran through this section of track between 1914 and 1974 was aided on its journey by the addition of electric locomotives to the trains. Then the railroad ceased those operations in this neighborhood and Harlowton began to dwindle away...
