The last customer appreciation lunch of the summer was held on a clear, chilly day in Missoula.  The local Western States team used the opportunity to catch up with customers and friends after a busy summer.  After grabbing some grub, guests could be found exploring displays of new equipment, talking to Railroad Solutions, or learning more about SiTech offerings.  TrackGrip, a potential aftermarket vendor, always seemed to have a crowd of people around their display.  One of their representatives, who had come to the BBQ all the way from New Zealand, was thrilled about the gorgeous scenery and fall colors around the area.  And as the crowds dispersed back to work, there was a general consensus that a BBQ was the perfect way to close out the summer.
