A west-bound BNSF manifest waits at the Helena depot for a set of helpers after changing crew.
I was able to catch a helper set heading back towards Helena up at Blossberg later that day:
Head end view of a Dash 8-40CW followed by BNSF SD60M #9297 (the one that bears the expirimental paint that was later modified into what we know as H1 & H2), a dash 9 in H2, & an ES44DC in H2 pulling an intermodel freight into Whitefish for a crew change.
