His PowerPoint presentation will feature images from some of Mills' previous books on railroading; images from the museum's collection; and previously unpublished images which will be used in the museum's new book on railroads. Gary and Connie Grittner of Fort Pierre's Bring it Home Committee will tell about effort to bring the Fort Pierre depot back to that community and restore it. The book "South Dakota Railroads" by Mike Wiese and Tom Hayes will be available to purchase at the program.
