Burlington Northern bought the Milwaukee Road mainline from Warden to Royal City not long after the Milwaukee abandoned the lines west of Terry, MT in 1980. After running them for six years, BN sold off the lines to shortline start up Washington Central. Here is one of their switchers moving cars at the Caration French fry plant (now Simplot) in Othello about 1990.
