CM&StP officials at Three Forks station
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway officials at Three Forks, Montana for the opening of the Gallatin Gateway to Yellowstone National Park on August 1, 1926. On that day, the railway opened a 33-mile branch line from Three Forks to the Gallatin Gateway, replacing the 1909 electric tram and allowing the operation of standard passenger cars all the way to the edge of the park. The following year, the Milwaukee built the Gallatin Gateway Inn beside the station. Passenger service to Yellowstone lasted until 1960.
