What the Bruck?
Pictured to the left is the "bruck." It was used earlier in the twentieth century to transport train passengers from Montana's Whitefish station to adjacent towns--including Kalispell. This refurbished bruck was on display at the Whitefish station, which boasts a city museum dedicated in part to the Great Northern Railroad. I highly recommend you pay it a visit if you're in the area. Whitefish, a hot destination for outdoors enthusiasts, also boasts some great food, shopping and, of course, casinos. Below are some more pics of the train station. A freight train passed through while I was there; unfortunately I was in the bathroom. My traveling companion snapped a pic, though, so hopefully I'll be able to show it to you in the coming weeks.
