Great Northern Railway

The main line of the Great Northern Railway stretched from St. Paul, Minnesota to Seattle, Washington. It was the sixty-mile stretch of rail from east of the Rockies through Montana’s Marias Pass and along the Middle Fork of the Flathead River – bordering the grandeur and breathtaking scenery of what would become Glacier National Park – that lured people from all over the world to the conductor’s call for “all aboard.” Glacier National Park and the Great Northern Railway became synonymous in the early twentieth century.   All Aboard!
