Early Montana railroads

From: "lindleywicks" linwicks@mac.com

Can anyone please tell me if in the state of Montana during the time frame of 1861-1864 was there a railroad being built.

Especially, interested in:

1. Was there a railroad in the upper part of Montana being built?

2. Did they hire Blackfeet Indians?

3. Do you know if Leland Stanford's railroad during this time frame had men building and or working on the railroads?

Please contact me at:
