There was once an agent for the GN who said he was willing to do
anything to get out of northern Montana. He heard of this busy station
on the PC&E and hired on.
It was busy! But he found they didn't call it rustic for nothing. All the mainline trains passed by his depot daily all right- at speed. One day he thought he would try to unlock the switch to his siding but the lock had rusted solid. All he could do was sit on the depot platform and wave at the train crews passing by. They would call out, "There's Gilman," on the platform. That's how it came to be named Gilman.
On the other side of Tunnel No.9 we find the very remote outpost of Gilman.
Still, very still, Gilman is sort of an interesing place.
See, a train passes through Gilman.
There's even a little revenue in Gilman. They get maybe three or four cars per season!
