Waiting for a Load of Wheat-Color

Choteau, Montana

A trailer truck waits for loading beside the grain elevators in Choteau, Montana during a January thaw. On the other side of the elevators are the railroad tracks of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe branchline from Great Falls ending just north of the Teton County seat of Choteau. The BNSF line is the former Great Northern line that later became the Burlington Northern Railway and is now the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
