YourToyTrains (Model Trains) suggests a trip to the East Glacier Lodge at East Glacier, Montana. Developed by the Great Northern Railway, the East Glacier Lodge is the ideal base for a railfan to enjoy Glacier National Park. This beautiful lodge is a short walk across beautiful gardens from the Amtrak station at East Glacier, which is served by the "Empire Builder" passenger train daily. The lodge has all the amenities associated with a national park lodge, and the view of the Rockies from the hotel is amazing. The BNSF Railway (successor to the Great Northern Railway), contributes to the railfan's interest with their very busy Chicago-Pacific Northwest main line. Enjoy a trip to East Glacier Lodge!
