According to Montana Rail Link, the locomotive slowly - an estimated 2 miles per hour - went beyond the end of track and a set of the wheels came off the rail.
The switcher sits near South 27th Street after it ran off the tracks east of the Western Sugar refinery.
Montana Rail Link Spokesperson says there is no track damage and no damage to the locomotive. Crews from R.J. Corman Railroad Group re-railed the errant goat shortly after 4 p.m. Play video.
Like Rickey used to tell Lucy, "You got some "splainin'" to do!"
