For my 3000th Railpictures.net submission, I have chosen a scan of one of my favorite Kodachrome transparencies. The location of this shot is at Martin, Utah, home of the Utah Railway Company's yard and diesel shop. On June 22, 1978, a quad of Alco RSD-4 and RSD-5 motors (300, 305, 306, 303) have just arrived from Wildcat with a loaded coal train. The four will be coupled to the 304 & 302 (at left) and assembled to power a swing helper west over Soldier Summit. This Alco fleet was purchased new by the Utah Railway when it dieselized, beginning in 1952 and retired after 30 years of hard labor by 1982. Only the 306 survives today, owned by Doyle McCormack and painted as the Nickel Plate 324.
