Remarks & Notes 
A pair of General Electric 125 ton, 3000 Volt 'Magna Motors' lead a 90 car train of copper ore empties bound for the Bingham Canyon Copper Mine in the Oquirrh Mountains. Built in 1947, the boxy GEs made easy work of Kennecott's 16 mile CTC equipped ore haulage line. By December of '78, the 'Magna Motors' were replaced by a small fleet of EMD SD40-2's.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
