GN LogoThe Great Northern Railway is set in 1955 at Havre, Montana. Havre is in north central Montana, and located about the center of the Butte Division. The Butte Division operated from Butte, Montana, to Williston, North Dakota, through Helena, Great Falls, Havre and east to Williston. There was Northern Pacific interchange at Helena, and Milwaukee Road at Great Falls.

The modeled area includes staging at Great Falls and Shelby, west of Havre, and Williston to the east. Operations extend from Pacific Junction, 2.5 miles west of Havre, to Havre Yard, Chinook, Harlem and Saco. This is mostly grain and cattle country, with some small industry. There are also coal, oil and commodities deliveries.

The Empire Builder, the Western Star, and three other passenger trains operate on this line as well.
