The Northern Pacific Railway (reporting mark NP) was a transcontinental railroad that operated across the northern tier of the western United States, from Minnesota to the Pacific Northwest. It was approved by Congress in 1864 and given nearly forty million acres (62,000 sq mi; 160,000 km2) of land grants, which it used to raise money in Europe for construction.

The restrictive language of its charter and the conservative nature of its management prevented the NP from building branch lines to developing gold, silver and copper mining camps such as Wallace, Cooke City, Elkhorn, Pony and Virginia City. James J. Hill of the Great Northern Railway recognized the NP's omission and began building a railroad into the territory. By 1886 the NP, aided by Helena banker Samuel T. Hauser, was in an all out war to protect its mining traffic sources. "Rails to Gold and Silver: Volume II covers the Northern Pacific & Montana's construction between 1888 and 1898 which resulted in the completion of the following six railroads: the Rocky Fork & Cooke City, the Butte Short Line, the Red Bluff & Pony, the Elkhorn Extension to the Helena, Boulder Valley & Butte, the Gaylord & Ruby Valley, and the De Smet to Idaho Line (Wallace branch). Rails to Gold and Silver: Volume I previously covered the construction of the Rocky Mountain, the Helena & Jefferson County, the Helena & Red Mountain, the Helena & Northern, the Helena, Boulder Valley & Butte, the Drummond & Philipsburg and the Missoula & Bitterroot Valley railroads."

As a Montana native (born and raised) I thoroughly enjoyed reading and seeing pictures about NP's building of short lines to move gold and silver.

As with the rest of the Taylors books, very informative, a must read for any Montana railroad historian. Very in depth.
