Remarks & Notes 
On Dec. 5, 1970, Rio Grande's Provo Switcher has been assigned the task of hauling former Union Pacific 2-8-0 #618 from Provo Yard to the mouth of Provo Canyon. Here the train curves slowly from the yard lead to the Provo Canyon Branch for a trip north up Second West in downtown Provo. The 618 was donated by the Union Pacific to the State of Utah upon retirement in 1958. By 1970, it was shipped from the Salt Lake Fairpark to serve on the new 'Heber Creeper' tourist line in Provo Canyon.
