Dependable Sentinel

MRL(Montana Rail Link)bungalow at West Plains,MT controlling the westbound control signals for the Plains siding and main,and the west end switch on the Plains siding.Also appears to be a radio link for the MRL Dispatcher.Wife and I had dinner in Plains but we had to hit this spot on the way back to Quinns as I have a collection of Station Board photos-this was a new one.
Joe O,

I like that shot a lot!!!

I believe that antennea is used for ATCS on the MRL.. I believe that it also has instructions programmed into it to align the east switch of Plains per dispatcher!!

Thanks for the info.Stopped here after dinner,there was something about the way the setting sun lit up the bungalow..had to get this shot!
