Episode 39:

Trainosaurous Wrecks

Rebecca and Mari have Dean Zook, the President of the Montana Museum of Railroad History, on the podcast to give insight on the hidden gems found at the extensive model railroad display at the museum. We find out who was the inspiration for Toy Story 2’s Stinky Pete character, as well as other hidden gems on display. Dean is also a member of the Great Falls Municipal Band, and the Great Falls Symphony!


Show Notes and Pull Quotes

The Montana Museum of Railroad History, located at Montana ExpoPark, is a free exhibit for fairgoers and visitors that are able to stop by on Thursday evenings or Saturday afternoons. When you first walk into the Railroad Museum, you might be overwhelmed at first. The vast and extensive model railroads and trains on display is impressive, and without knowing where to look, you might miss the silver buffalo, UFO, and Ted Kaczynski’s cabin.

Thank you Dean for being on the podcast! We can’t wait to return to the museum and see even more hidden gems.
