Railroad Depot, Havre, Montana

Railroad Depot in Havre, Montana in February 2000

The depot in Havre, at 235 Main Street, is not only an Amtrak station; it also a local base of operation for Burlington Northern-Santa Fe freight operations and maintenance crews.  As a result, it is a large depot for a city of Havre's size.  The Burlington Northern Santa Fe was formed in 1995 when the Burlington Northern Railroad (successor to the Great Northern) and the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad merged together.  The station in Havre still shows signs of its Burlington Northern heritage, and though the situation seems to be improving over time, an apparent identity crisis remains.
