MRL on Mullan Pass in HO

You’ll enjoy this unique HO scale modern layout by Kirk Thompson, which models the east side of the Montana Rail Link’s Mullan Pass in Montana’s Rocky Mountains. On the movie, you’ll enjoy video of the trains in action and you’ll learn some of the history of the line, which was built by the Northern Pacific. We share some of the history of the Mullan Tunnel’s construction and challenges over the years. You’ll see many of the trains that the BNSF hands over to the MRL as they haul heavy tonnage up the 2.2% grade on the model with the MRL’s newest SD70ACes as manned helpers. You’ll learn about the layout’s design and you’ll love how Kirk allowed space for the huge curve at Austin, where you can watch trains wrap around it as they climb the grade. The railfanning video includes grain, coal, oil, autorack, intermodal, and manifest trains taking on the pass. The movie also includes the MRL’s own local freight trains, switching in Helena, and a cab ride around the layout.
