With clouds building up over the mountains I decided to go down toward Helena to see if anything else was moving. West of Helena a grain train was cutting in a helper at Tobin. After about an hour X05 gets a signal to proceed and heads up the valley passed the first road crossing. The train had two F45 on the headend: units 6616 and 6635. Coupled ahead of the caboose were engines 7252, 7243, and 7244. Shortly after the train went by it started to rain. So I gave up the chase. Just as well as I later discovered that I would always be behind the train and never have another chance to get ahead of it again as the road that follows the tracks crosses it several times.
