ARTICLE EXCERPT: Years ago, it was common for Great Northern Railway caboose X215 to rumble through Essex and past the Izaak Walton Inn on the end of another train climbing Marias Pass or headed for the Flathead Valley.
Now, old X215 and another historic railroad caboose have returned to Essex, restored by the Izaak Walton Inn and are now high-end hotel accommodations. According to manager David Gatton, the cabooses will be ready for visitors in early December.
