As Last Train Rolls Out of Town, a ‘New Era’ Begins in Kalispell

Kalispell train

On Dec. 27, just four days shy of the 128th anniversary of the Great Northern Railway’s arrival, the Mission Mountain Railroad ran its last freight train out of downtown Kalispell. The final train was the result of years of work to move the railroad out of downtown and redevelop Kalispell’s long-underused industrial core. Officials expect the two miles of track to be ripped up next year to make way for a new trail connecting Woodland Park with Meridian Road.
