The 126-year-old Coutts-Sweetgrass train station once straddled the international border between Montana and Alberta, Canada. In September, 1916, officials of the Great Northern railroad were surprised to find Canadian Pacific Railway workers on the roof of the station with saws. Jason Paul Sailer relates the colorful history of this station and how it came to be "Sawed in Two." The station has been preserved and is now part of the Galt Historic Railway Park
